Enosch Wolf was arrested early Monday morning after a domestic dispute and has been suspended from the team indefinitely.
Wolf was arrested by UConn police
at 5:55 a.m. Monday and is being charged with burglary in the third degree,
criminal trespass in the first degree and disorderly conduct.
According to a police report, officers were called to the
LaFlesche building, a residential building on UConn’s campus. Upon arrival,
officers discovered that Wolf had been in a physical altercation with a female
resident of the building. Wolf refused to leave the apartment when he was asked
to and grabbed the hair of the victim and pushed her head, according to the
Wolf also knocked the glasses off the victim’s face with
his hand. He continued to remain in the apartment and was subsequently
“We are aware of
the situation concerning Enosch and we are taking the matter very seriously,”
UConn head coach Kevin Ollie said in a statement released by the university. “He
has been suspended from the team indefinitely, until the legal and university
process is finalized.
“I have spoken to the players on the team previously, and
will continue to speak with them, about their conduct both on and off the
basketball court. We have high expectations of our student-athletes at UConn,
and I expect my players to live up to those standards.”
Wolf, a 7-1 center, is averaging 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds per game for
Wolf’s bond was posted at $500.
Obviously, there are two sides to every story, and Wolf will have his day in court (his initial hearing is on Wednesday). But this sounds all too similar to the Nate Miles incident back in 2008 (although, as Neill Ostrout of the J-I points out, Miles was eventually expelled for violating a restraining order, not the assault charges that led to that restraining order).
As it stands now, it doesn't appear any protective order would have been taken out against Wolf yet, since those are done through the court system and the courts were closed Monday. In fact, Rockville Superior Court is closed Tuesday, too, due to Lincoln's Birthday, which is why Wolf's hearing isn't until Wednesday.
