Police Report: Wright State's Tavares Sledge Struck Girlfriend During Argument
FAIRBORN -- Wright State basketball star Tavares Sledge, 21, is facing domestic violence and child endangering charges after police say he struck his girlfriend during an argument.
Sledge, a junior forward for the Wright State men's basketball team, has pleaded not guilty today to child endangering, domestic violence, resisting arrest and obstructing official business charges following an incident Saturday night.
According to the Wright State Police Department, Sledge and his girlfriend had just left the Nutter Center buying tickets to the circus. While in his vehicle on Raider Road, police say Tavares and his girlfriend began to argue.
According to what the girlfriend told police, Tavares tried to grab his iPod from her and struck her in the face.
The dispute reportedly continued when the two arrived at their shard residence, at 245 Orville Street, Fairborn, and a neighbor called police.
Fairborn police say Sledge refused their commands when they responded to the domestic violence call. He was sitting in a 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis and refused to take the vehicle out of reverse and put it in park and failed to comply with any of officers' commands. Eventually, they decided to break the car's window to gain entry.
Sledge's and the woman's child was in the front passenger seat at the time and he sustained a scratch on his forehead. Police say they did not know the child was in the vehicle until they were breaking the window and Sledge reportedly yelled, "My baby."
Once Sledge was out of the car, police continued to struggle placing him under arrest.
Police noted they saw a small scratch on the left side of the girlfriend's eye, along with some redness and swelling. Fairborn medics treated the girlfriend and their baby at the scene.Police say that when Sledge was booked into the Fairborn Jail, his overall demeanor was "very polite and respectful." When asked why he was acting so aggressively and non-compliant on scene, Sledge reportedly told police he "thought you were going to take my child away from me."
Wright State Basketball Star Charged With Child Endangering, Domestic Violence
FAIRBORN -- Tavares Sledge, a junior forward for the Wright State mens basketball team, has pleaded not guilty today to child endangering and domestic violence charges following an incident Saturday night.
Sledge also pleaded not guilty to resisting arrest and obstructing official business.
Wright State coach Billy Donlon released this statement following his court appearance:
We were made aware that Tavares Sledge was arrested following an incident Saturday evening, and he was immediately suspended indefinitely, Donlon said. These are very serious allegations, but it would be inappropriate to have any further comment until the judicial process has run its course.
