Wildcat player charged with disorderly conduct, assault

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona Wildcat football star Ka'Deem Carey was in court today to face domestic violence charges. Tucson News Now has learned he was charged with disorderly conduct and assault.

The assault charge is a misdemeanor and it is unclear whether the disorderly conduct charge is classified as a felony or misdemeanor.

The charges  stem from an alleged domestic violence incident on December 23, involving Carey's pregnant ex-girlfriend. 

She says that night Carey knocked her to the ground and slammed her fingers in the door, after forcing his way into her home to get a lighter to use an illegal substance. 

The ex-girlfriend filed a protection order against Carey. 

Carey was not arrested and agreed to appear in court; as of right now there is no change in his status with the University of Arizona football team. 

The University and the Athletics department say they will help authorities in any way they can.
