Miami's Ramon Buchanan Reinstated By Al Golden After Felony Arrest

Miami starting linebacker Ramon Buchananlooking all kinds of cuddly here in his official team photo, has been fully reinstated to the Hurricanes by Al Golden, ending his weeks-long suspension following a March arrest. Buchanan was arrested in a Coconut Grove bar on March 18, and charged with two felonies (resisting a police officer with violence, battery on a police officer) and three misdemeanors (resisting a police officer without violence, disorderly conduct, and trespassing), but Golden seems very confident with his decision:

"He’s done everything we’ve asked him to do, both me and the athletic department," Golden said. "Based on my knowledge of the case, and what we know as a university, we feel comfortable reinstating him at this point in time. We’ll reassess as it unveils itself."

SB Nation's Miami blog, The 7th Floor, hears tell that the charges against Buchanan may be reducing in severity, which would go a long way towards explaining why a player is back on the field after being charged with battery of a police officer.
