According to the Tucson police department, detectives have worked with the city prosecutor and a decision has been made to file charges against University of Arizona Wildcat running back Ka'Deem Carey.
According to Tucson Police Sgt. Chris Widmer, the charges stem from a domestic violence incident on December 23. No arrests were made on that day because Carey and his ex-girlfriend had conflicting reports on what happened.
Widmer said both Carey and the ex-girlfriend had minor injuries and the case was passed on to domestic violence detectives.
After the decision to press charges was made, Widmer said Carey was advised he was going to be arrested at that he could voluntarily attend court and face the charges.
The exact charges will not be released until he is formally charged in court.
This comes after the football star was served with a protective order last Wednesday.
Inside the court documents are allegations made by Carey's pregnant ex-girlfriend that he knocked her to the ground.
Carey's ex-girlfriend filed the protection order, claiming he is a danger to her and their expected child.
It talks about one specific incident on December 23. She alleges Carey tried to force his way into the home to get a lighter, so that he could use an illegal substance.
It goes on to say he knocked her to the ground and slammed her fingers in the door.
Court documents also reveal a pending domestic violence report. Tucson News Now checked with the county attorney's office and they could not tell us whether any charges are pending against Cary.
When Tucson News Now's Matt Mendes spoke with Carey briefly today, he denied physically fighting with his ex-girlfriend and referred all other questions to his attorney.
As of Monday, no charges will be filed against the ex-girlfriend.
