Former IU football player Wesley Green, 22, was arrested Saturday night by the Bloomington Police Department on charges of misdemeanor domestic battery.
According to BPD Capt. Steve Kellams, the arrest came following an argument between Green and his girlfriend, during which Green's girlfriend said she was shoved and punched in the head by Green.
Kellams said there were no reported injuries, but Green's girlfriend did have a complaint of pain.
Green joined the Hoosiers prior to the 2015 season after spending his freshman season at the University of South Carolina in 2014. He did not play in a game while at South Carolina.
After sitting out the 2015 season due to NCAA transfer rules, Green appeared in IU's wins against Maryland and Purdue in 2016 as a sophomore, after being suspended indefinitely at the beginning of the 2016 season.
On March 25, 2017, Green was dismissed from the IU football program along with quarterback Danny Cameron and tight end Jordan Fuchs. The three players had initially been suspended indefinitely earlier that month.
Those suspensions and dismissals were the first ones of Coach Tom Allen's tenure at IU.
