Suspended football player suspected of domestic assault

ASU football player Terell Carr was arrested Monday night in connection to a domestic disturbance involving his pregnant ex-girlfriend inside the San Pablo Residence Hall on the Tempe campus, officials said.

Carr, a senior cornerback who started seven games for the Sun Devils this season, was arrested around 11:15 p.m. Monday night and booked into Maricopa County Jail early Tuesday morning on charges of misdemeanor domestic violence assault and disorderly conduct, said Cmdr. Jim Hardina, spokesman for the ASU Police Department.

Carr is suspected of pushing and choking the 20-year-old woman, who is pregnant with his child, in her dorm room, he said. A community assistant called police after hearing a loud argument.

When the community assistant knocked on the door, the pair apologized for making noise. A few minutes later there was reportedly more noise and the community assistant called police and Carr was subsequently arrested, Hardina said.

Carr also had an outstanding warrant for driving on a suspended license, he said.

The woman had red marks on her face but did not want or seek medical treatment, Hardina said. Witnesses told police Carr hit the woman.

Hardina could not confirm reports that the argument stemmed from Carr pushing the woman to get an abortion.

ASU football coach Dennis Erickson announced following Tuesday’s practice that Carr had been indefinitely suspended for violating a team rule. Carr had 28 tackles, a team-high six pass breakups and a forced fumble this season.
