Lacedaruis Dunn Assault Charge Was A Misunderstanding, Says Girlfriend's Father

The charges against Lacedarius Dunn still stand, but if his girlfriend's father is telling the truth, then he might be cleared sooner than we thought. Fox Sports spoke to Charles Edwards, father of Lacedarius' girlfriend, LaCharlesia, and he had this to say:

"She said it was an accident. She said she sneaked up on him in the dark and he hit her by mistake. It wasn’t a fight at all. She doesn’t want to press charges or anything like that."

"I’ve known him for a while and was hearing nasty things, so I drove down from Louisiana to Dallas to find out. I knew it was out of character, so I wanted to see for myself.”

"My daughter is much better. She’s fine. She and I really both thought this had already been dropped.”

So now the question becomes: how in the world were charges pressed if this was all a simple mistake? Not doubting the father here, but more the authorities in Dallas that charged Lacedarius Dunn, told reporters he broke his girlfriend's jaw, and, maybe, ignored evidence that pointed to his obvious innocence.

In any case, here's to hoping the father's version of events is accurate, and Lacedarius and LaCharlesia go on to live happily ever after. With names like those, it's clearly meant to be.

Report: Lacedarius Dunn Charged With Felony Aggravated Assault

According to CBS Sports, Lacedarius Dunn has been charged with aggravated assault against his girlfriend. The charge is a felony in Texas, and would likely result in his expulsion from Baylor if proven true.

Elsewhere, according to the Sporting News, the news gets worse. Mike Decourcy reports that Waco police are saying that Dunn punched his girlfriend in the face, breaking her jaw. That's second-degree assault in Texas, and also just completely indefensible if true.

For now, it's too early to jump to conclusions, but the news does not look good for Dunn. And at a school with an ugly history of off-court trouble (think Patrick Dennehy), you'd have to think the leash will be short.

Say It Ain't So, Lacedarius! Baylor All-American Suspended Following Arrest

The details are still sketchy at this point, but according to numerous reports, Baylor guard Lacedarius Dunn has been suspended indefinitely following an arrest outside Waco, Texas.

The school has not given any further details as to Dunn's transgression, and again, the suspension is indefinite for now. But if it's something that becomes serious, it would leave Baylor without its best player, and one of the most talented players in the entire country.

Dunn was closing in on the Big 12 scoring record this season, and averaged 19.4 points per game for last year's Baylor team. This was to be his senior year.

He's been suspended from "all team activities" according to Baylor coach Scott Drew, and further action will come after the school completes its own investigation into the incident. Stay tuned for updates.
