Just when he was becoming an integral part of the UConn Huskies men's basketball team, Enosch Wolf now finds himself suspended indefinitely after being arrested early Monday morning.
According to the police report, Wolf was arrested after being involved in domestic altercation with a female. He refused to leave the apartment, pushed the victim, grabbed her hair and also knocked the victim's glasses off.
Wolf was charged with burglary, criminal trespass and disorderly contact. He is being held on a $500 non-surety bond and is due in Rockville Superior Court on February 13th.
In 22 games (three starts), Wolf was averaging 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. He also had 19 blocks and eight steals.
Here is the statement released by UConn about the situation:
STORRS - Junior center Enosch Wolf (Goettingen, Germany) has been suspended from the University of Connecticut men's basketball team following an on-campus incident early Monday morning that resulted in his arrest by university police. The suspension is indefinite, pending the completion of the legal process and a university review process.
"We are aware of the situation concerning Enosch and we are taking the matter very seriously," UConn head basketball coach Kevin Ollie said. "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."
The university will have no further comment on the matter at this time.
