COLUMBIA, Mo. – A former Missouri basketball player is seeking a protection order against Zach Price, who remains suspended from the team after being arrested twice for allegedly assaulting his roommate and a woman.
The Columbia Daily Tribune (bit.ly/1i2mudc ) reports that Earnest Ross filed the petition in Boone County Circuit Court on April 2. Price was arrested twice the next day after reportedly first ramming his car into another vehicle and then in a later encounter with the pair. Police say he hit his male roommate in the face then pushed the woman to the ground.
The restraining order request identifies Ross as the roommate and his girlfriend as the other victim. Price sat out last season after transferring from Louisville. No charges have been filed in the case.
