CFB: Oregon RB LaMichael James arrested


Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. Oregon running back LaMichael James has been arrested by Springfield police.

The 20-year-old tailback was taken into custody Wednesday and lodged at the Lane County Jail on misdemeanor charges of menacing, strangulation and assault.

Springfield police said they were not ready to discuss details of the incident.

James replaced the suspended LeGarrette Blount after the season opener and set the Pac-10's freshman rushing mark this past season with 1,546 yards.
