Basketball Standout Suspended Following Arrest
Baylor men’s basketball coach Scott Drew has suspended senior guard LaceDarius Dunn following his arrest on aggravated assault charges involving his girlfriend who was treated for a broken jaw last week. Dunn was booked into the McLennan County Jail Tuesday after turning himself in. Last week, Dunn’s longtime girlfriend, Lacharlesia Edwards, was taken to a Waco hospital where police were summoned. Their reports say they found her holding the couple’s three-year-old child as she cried and spit up blood. During surgery, doctors installed a plate with six screws on one side of her jaw and another plate with eight screws on the other side. Edwards told police that Dunn punched her with a closed fist during a fight at their apartment near the Baylor campus.
