USF wide receiver suspended after arrest

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The University of South Florida has suspended sophomore wide receiver Chris Dunkley from the football team after he was arrested and charged with domestic battery.

USF head coach Skip Holtz announced the 21-year-old's indefinite suspension in a statement Sunday.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office reports that Dunkley was arrested Saturday night, several hours after the Bulls lost to Florida State 30-17.

Authorities say the arrest was the result of a Sept. 21 argument that turned physical between Dunkley and his girlfriend, with whom he shared an off-campus apartment. The girlfriend filed a complaint with deputies Saturday, less than an hour before the game.

Dunkley was released from jail Monday morning. Jail records didn't list an attorney.
