TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - University of Arizona football player Ka'Deem Carey was forced to leave a basketball game last week after a verbal confrontation with a police officer and event staff.

A UA Athletics event staff member asked Carey, 20, and his cousin Hakeem Adams-Johnson, 19, to leave the McKale Center student seating area during Thursday's UA vs. UCLA  game "because they were double seated and sitting on the backs of chairs," according to a UA Police report.

Carey, an All-American running back, and Adams-Johnson were asked to move on four occasions before complying when a police officer asked them to move, the report said.

Carey told the officer they were sitting there because they couldn't find their seats, the report said.

According to the report, when the officer asked the men for their tickets, Carey said, "Get the (expletive) out of my face! Don't you know who I am? I am an All-American."

At this point, the report says, the officer asked the men to come outside with him. Carey explained that he and Adams-Johnson were having problems getting tickets.

After the officer completed a "Code of Conduct" on Carey and determined that Adams-Johnson is not a student at the university, both men apologized and left the area, the report said.

Carey has recently made headlines for other legal issues. He is facing charges related to a domestic violence incident from Dec. 23, 2012 involving his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Marissa Rambow, who is also a student at the UA.
