LOS ANGELES (AP) -UCLA junior forward Nikola Dragovic was arrested Friday on suspicion of pushing his former live-in girlfriend to the ground during a dispute.
The 20-year-old Dragovic of Belgrade, Serbia, 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 was taken into custody and booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery. Bail was set at $20,000.
The 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.
