MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -A former girlfriend of Memphis basketball player Robert Dozier filed a complaint, saying he hit her in the face after they got out of their cars and argued at an intersection.
No charges have been filed. John Calipari, coach of the No. 1 and unbeaten Tigers, said he is investigating to determine if a university or team policy was violated.
Dozier followed Laparis Woods by car from a nightclub early Sunday, police spokeswoman Monique Martin said. Woods told police that after they stopped their cars, Dozier hit her twice on the right side of her face with an open hand, causing minor swelling. One person, whom police have not identified, was with Woods at the time.
``I want to apologize for any harm or misconceptions about our university or school,'' Dozier said in a statement after Wednesday night's game. ``I want to apologize to my parents, my teammates and my coaching staff. I'll make sure whatever happens at the end of this, that it never happens again.''
Woods was at the Plush Club on Sunday night in the city's famous Beale Street entertainment district.
Sophomore Shawn Taggart and freshman Jeff Robinson were arrested outside the same club and charged with inciting a riot Sept. 2. Those charges are still pending, and they are due back in court Feb. 19. According to the police report, senior forward Joey Dorsey allegedly started the mayhem but was never charged.
Calipari to set a midnight curfew and banned his team from attending nightclubs this summer. The ban was lifted at the start of the season.
Dozier, a forward, is averaging 10.5 points and 7.3 rebounds for the Tigers (22-0, 7-0 Conference USA).
