CBKB: ISU's Boozer to leave team after arrest


Associated Press

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.
