After a fairly successful spring game on Saturday, this wasn't the type of headline Kevin Wilson was looking to wake up to this morning. Redshirt junior defensive lineman Ralph Green was arrested on three charges early Sunday morning (read: Saturday night, after the game) after slapping a woman at a party who refused to dance with him. This was all first reported by our friend at the Herald Times, Mike Miller.
Per court documents, he'll face charges of battery (a class A misdemeanor), public intoxication, and disorderly conduct after a party in the 1300 block of North Lincoln Street.
This is the first known domestic battery case involving an Indiana athlete since the Ray Rice incident drew major & much deserved national attention last season. Indiana athletics says Green has already been suspended from the program.
Green was a bit of a breakout performer for the Hoosiers two seasons ago and was expected to be a integral part of the Hoosiers' defensive line rotation. He was named a Freshman All-American by some outlets in his first season in Bloomington, and followed that up with a meager sophomore campaign -- only registering 19 tackles in 11 games.
