TUCSON, Ariz. – A University of Arizona football player has been arrested on domestic violence charges and released from the team.
Tucson police spokesman Sgt. Pete Dugan said 20-year-old Orlando Bradford was arrested on seven felony charges on Wednesday. He is being held at Pima County Jail on a $20,000 bond.
