Nevada Wolf Pack running back Chris Solomon was arrested by the Reno Police Department on Sunday for first-degree battery. The charge is a misdemeanor and Solomon has been suspended by the team as a result.

No further details on Solomon’s arrest have been released, but he remained jailed on Monday at Washoe County Jail.

“We are aware of the incident and Chris has been suspended from the team as we continue to gather more information,” Wolf Pack head coach Brian Polian said in a press release.

Solomon was the team’s No. 3 running back in 2013, but he still saw plenty of playing time. Solomon finished last season with 89 carries for 282 yards and one touchdown. He added three catches for 79 yards.

It will be interesting to see what the Wolf Pack will decide to do when they learn the full details of the arrest, but they are taking the right approach by allowing the legal system to run its course.
