Nevada running back Chris Solomon has been dismissed from the Wolf Pack, according to team spokesman Chad Hartley, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported.
Soloman was arrested on January 19th for first degree battery and was suspended from the team by coach Brian Polin. He has now been dismissed from the program and university for good.
Reno police issued a statement about the arrest saying:
“There was evidence that indicated Mr. Solomon had battered his girlfriend, as she had sustained injuries to her person.
REMSA personnel were requested to respond and evaluate Mr. Solomon’s girlfriend, which they did. Based on the injuries and the evidence on scene, Mr. Solomon was arrested for Domestic Battery (1st Offense).”
Solomon was the team’s No. 3 running back in 2013, but received a healthy number of handoffs. He finished the season with 89 carries for 282 yards and one touchdown. He added three catches for 79 yards in the air.
His best performance came in a big loss to Jameis Winstons' Florida State side where he put up 108 yards off 26 carries.
