CBKB: ISU's Boozer to leave team after arrest
AMES, Iowa — Iowa State reserve guard Charles Boozer says he's leaving the team to seek treatment for unspecified problems.
Boozer was arrested over the weekend after a woman told police he slapped and kicked her.
Police say Boozer was charged with simple assault, a misdemeanor, on Saturday in Ames. A complaint accuses Boozer of slapping the woman in the face, pushing her to the ground and kicking her in the side.
Boozer, a junior from Raleigh, N.C., who had season-ending surgery in January, posted a cash bond Saturday and was released.
Boozer announced his decision to leave the team and apologized for his actions in a statement released by the school Monday. He is the younger brother of Utah Jazz star Carlos Boozer.
