Zach Price is now suspended by Missouri due to these charges.
The Columbia Daily Tribune says this of the incident:
Price, 20, was involved in a dispute with a 23-year-old male roommate and a 23-year-old female and followed them from the area of Heather Lane and Ash Street to the area of Stadium Boulevard and blocked in their vehicle with his own vehicle, preventing them from leaving the area, according to the report.
The statement said that Price exited the vehicle and struck the male victim in the face with a closed fist. The other victim attempted to intervene and was pushed to the ground by Price.
One of the victims tried to spray Price with mace. Both victims were said to sustain minor injuries as a result of Price’s actions.
Price and his family moved from Ohio to J-Town, Kentucky to play his senior year of high school after he committed to play for Louisville. the 6’10″ Price played 7.7 minutes while averaging 1.3 points and 1.4 rebounds his sophomore season at Louisville.
Price came to Louisville with a bunch of high quality players, like Chane Behanan. Since then Louisville has won a lot of games, but has had some off the court issues as well. Wayne Blackshear is the only players left from that class.
UPDATE 5:30 pm Thursday
Zach Price has reportedly been arrested for a 2nd time on Thursday. More details to come.
Columbia Police confirm that Mizzou basketball player Zach Price has been brought in and arrested for the second time today. More to come.
