BY foxsports • September 13, 2010

Wake Forest has suspended junior center Tony Woods indefinitely following a recent arrest.

Coach Jeff Bzdelik (buzz-DEL'-ik) said Monday that Woods was suspended ''in order to allow him to devote his time and effort to address the allegations that he is facing.''

Woods was arrested last week and faces misdemeanor charges of assault inflicting serious injury, assault on a female and assault inflicting injury in the presence of a child. According to a report filed by Winston-Salem police, Woods is accused of kicking and pushing down the mother of his 1-year-old son, causing her to fracture her spine.

Woods averaged about five points and three rebounds in 31 games last season. He faces a Sept. 30 court date.
