LOS ANGELES (AP) -UCLA junior forward Nikola Dragovic was released on bail Saturday, a day after being arrested on suspicion of pushing his former live-in girlfriend to the ground during a dispute.
The tussle occurred after Dragovic went to the apartment he shared with the woman and found his belongings had been dumped out front, police officer April Harding said.
``He and the ex-girlfriend began to argue. He got mad and pushed her down,'' Harding said.
Dragovic, 20, of Belgrade, Serbia, was taken into custody and booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery.
He was released after posting $20,000 bail, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department records showed.
Dragovic's arrest caused him to miss No. 4 UCLA's 76-42 exhibition victory over Biola.
Bruins coach Ben Howland said he needed to gather all the facts before deciding whether to discipline Dragovic.
``She's a great kid. Nikola's a great kid. I'm very confident everything will be rectified soon,'' Howland said.
