Baylor’s Dunn suspended after arrest

Baylor senior guard LaceDarius Dunn has been suspended

indefinitely following an arrest for aggravated assault following

what police are calling a domestic dispute with his long-time

girlfriend.

The incident, according to the Waco Police Department, occurred

on Sept. 27 when officers were called to Hillcrest Hospital to

investigate an assault.

Waco Sergeant Melvin Roseborough told FOXSports.com that Dunn

was charged with second-degree felony.

Lacharlesia Edwards, 21, suffered a fractured jaw after what

policed called an argument in which the 23-year-old Dunn punched

Edwards in the face.

However, Edwards’ father, told FOXSports.com on Tuesday

that the incident was an accident.

“She said it was an accident,” Charles Edwards told

FOXSports.com. “She said she sneaked up on him in the dark and he

hit her by mistake. It wasn’t a fight at all.”

“She doesn’t want to press charges or anything like

that,” he added. “She’s torn up now that he’s

been arrested.”

Charles Edwards said his daughter and Dunn have been dating

since junior high school and have a 3-year-old son, Dillion,

together.

“I’ve known him for a while and was hearing nasty things,

so I drove down from Louisiana to Dallas to find out,” he

said. “I knew it was out of character, so I wanted to see for

myself.”

“My daughter is much better,” Edwards added. “She’s

fine. She and I really both thought this had already been

dropped.”

Baylor put out a statement following Dunn’s arrest on

Tuesday that he has been suspended indefinitely from all team

activities while the school continues to “gather all the facts

surrounding this incident.”

The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Dunn is considered one of the top

returning players in the country after averaging 19.6 points last

season for a Bears team that lost to Duke in the Elite Eight.
