MADISON, Wis. (AP) -Sophomore running back Lance Smith has been suspended from the Wisconsin football team.
Athletic director Barry Alvarez said Smith violated the athletic department's student-athlete discipline policy. The school did not offer any details, citing privacy laws.
Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain said Smith got into a dispute with his girlfriend after midnight Saturday over how much money she owed him for cab fare. No charges had been filed as of Wednesday afternoon.
Smith is suspended from competition and practice pending the availability of further information regarding his case, the school said.
Smith, a 19-year-old from Warren, Ohio, was the Badgers' second-leading rusher last season with 345 yards on 95 carries and five touchdowns. He will remain on official squad lists and can continue to receive support services in the sports medicine facility, the academic support center and the weight training room.
