UA running back Orlando Bradford was dismissed from the football team after being arrested and charged with domestic violence on Wednesday.

Tucson Police Department responded to a report of domestic violence in the 500 block of East Ninth Street Wednesday morning. When the officers arrived at the scene, they said the victim had obvious signs of assault. After further investigation, the victim identified Bradford as the suspect.

TPD said Bradford was arrested without incident at 2 p.m. He was charged with seven felony counts; three charges of domestic violence/kidnapping and four charges of domestic violence/aggravated assault.

The victim said there were multiple assaults over the last couple of days. The crimes occurred near the 2900 block of East Presidio Road, according to the victim.

Tucson Police Department spokesman, Sgt. Pete Dugan, said the victim and Bradford were reportedly in a relationship.

During the video court hearing, Bradford pleaded not guilty to all the charges. The victim spoke at Bradford's hearing. The victim said she was scared that if Bradford is released, he would harm her again.

The judge ordered Bradford to have no contact with the victim. Bradford will be held on a $20,000 bond. 

Head coach Rich Rodriguez released the following statement:

“Earlier today, we were made aware that Orlando Bradford had been arrested. As a result of his actions, he has been dismissed from the program.”

The preliminary hearing is set for Sept. 26.
