Missouri's Zach Price suspended from the basketball team after two arrests in 24 hours

University of Missouri basketball player Zach Price is suspended from the team after being arrested twice in 24 hours for allegedly assaulting his roommate and a woman.

Columbia Police Sgt. Joe Bernhard says that Price, 20, was arrested Thursday afternoon for domestic assault and assault after the 23-year-old victims reported that Price rammed their car at least twice Wednesday afternoon. That investigation was ongoing when Price was arrested on another alleged encounter with the same victims Thursday morning.

Police say he hit his male roommate in the face then pushed the woman to the ground.

Price had bonded out of jail on the charges stemming from the first incident.

Missouri Coach Frank Haith said after the first arrest that he was "very disappointed" with Price and will discipline him accordingly.

Price sat out last season after transferring from Louisville. You probably won't be seeing him suit up for the Tigers next season unless head coach Frank Haith turns a blind eye to the incident.
