Bryce Dejean-Jones Arrested: Latest Details, Mugshot and Reaction

When the Iowa State men’s basketball team takes on rival Iowa Friday night, it may have to do so without senior guard Bryce Dejean-Jones as he was arrested Wednesday night.

According to ESPN.com’s Jeff Goodman, the transfer and former UNLV standout is facing a marijuana charge:

Goodman is also reporting that Dejean-Jones has been charged with misdemeanor counts of a nuisance party violation and noise ordinance violation. Police responded to a call that led them to Dejean-Jones’ Ames, Iowa apartment, although Ames police department commander Geoff Huff said it wasn’t the first time the authorities have dealt with the Iowa State star.

“Officers smelled burnt marijuana when they arrived at the apartment,” Huff said. “We had been working with them in the past because there were several noise complaints.”

Here is a look at Dejean-Jones’ mugshot courtesy of BlackSportsOnline.com’s Robert Littal:

Dejean-Jones is the Cyclones’ No. 2 scorer this season with over 17 points per game, and he also averages nearly seven rebounds and over three assists per contest as well.

He has been a key figure in Iowa State’s 6-1 start, but his status moving forward is very much in question as he is in the midst of significant legal issues.

University of New Mexico Women’s Basketball’s Ebony Walker Arrested for Assault

New Mexico center and captain Ebony Walker was arrested and charged with aggravated assault of a household member Tuesday night after an altercation at her apartment complex.

According to Nicole Perez of the Albuquerque Journal, a neighbor called police when she heard a loud argument between Walker and her boyfriend that got physical. The neighbor claimed Walker and her boyfriend pushed one another, and then Walker chased him through the apartment complex as he attempted to leave. Police allege that Walker threw a knife at her boyfriend as she was chasing him.    

The altercation was reportedly about a phone. The airborne knife, which Walker claims she was not throwing at her boyfriend, did not strike him. Police say the boyfriend, who was unnamed in the police report, was “reluctant” to cooperate with their investigation.

Walker was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault and booked Tuesday evening. She was released after posting bail Wednesday.

The 6’2″ center averaged 10.3 points and 5.7 rebounds per game last season. She is entering her redshirt senior season for New Mexico. The Lobos are coming off a disappointing 9-17 season under head coach Yvonne Sanchez.

The university is yet to comment on Walker’s arrest.

Jeffery Taylor Arrested: Latest Details, Mugshot and Reaction

Charlotte Hornets forward Jeff Taylor was arrested Thursday morning in East Lansing, Michigan, after allegedly committing domestic assault.

Taylor, 25, was arrested when police responded to a domestic disturbance call at a Marriott hotel around 1 a.m. ET, per WILX 10 NBC. He was booked on charges of domestic assault, simple assault and malicious destruction of property. Bail was set at $5,000, though it is unclear whether Taylor is still incarcerated at this time.

The former Vanderbilt star was the then-Bobcats’ second-round selection in 2012. He has career averages of 6.6 points and 2.0 rebounds, shooting 41.2 percent from the field in 103 appearances. Taylor was limited to 23 games last season after suffering a torn Achilles tendon.

“The Charlotte Hornets were made aware of the incident involving Jeffery Taylor early this evening,” the Hornets said in a statement. “The organization is in the process of gathering more information and doing our due diligence. This is a matter that we take very seriously.”

Domestic violence awareness has reached an apex in sports culture over the last few weeks and months, particularly due to the NFL’s handling of former Ravens running back Ray Rice. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell received criticism first for a light two-game suspension and then for a seeming lack of transparency when further evidence arose, which led to an indefinite ban for Rice.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver, citing increased awareness caused by the NFL situation, said the league plans on reviewing its current domestic violence policy. 

“We learn from other league’s experiences. We’re studying everything that’s been happening in the NFL,” Silver told reporters when questioned at a Monday press conference. “We’re working with our players’ association [and new executive director Michele Roberts]. We’ve been talking for several weeks, and we’re going to take a fresh look at everything we do.”

Silver said the NBA is taking steps to ensure “mistakes don’t happen again.” The NBA, NHL and MLB do not currently have policies specifically related to domestic violence. Under the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement, felonies are under the same umbrella and come with a minimum 10-game suspension.

“When a player is convicted of (including a plea of guilty, no contest, or nolo contendere) a violent felony, he shall immediately be suspended by the NBA for a minimum of ten games,” the league’s collective bargaining agreement reads, per the New York Daily News.

Taylor is in the last year of his rookie contract, which calls for a guaranteed $915,243, per Sham SportsNeither the Hornets nor Taylor has released a statement.
