indefinitely after being arrested by campus police early Monday morning.

According to the campus police report:

UConn Police were called to investigate a domestic dispute between a man and woman in the LaFlesche building. The LaFlesche building is a residential building on the campus of the University of Connecticut in Storrs. Upon arrival, Officers discovered that Enosch Wolf had been in a physical altercation with a female resident of the building. Wolf refused to leave the apartment when he was asked to and grabbed the hair of the victim and pushed her head. Wolf also knocked the glasses off of the victims face with his hand. Wolf continued to remain in the apartment and was subsequently arrested by police.

Wolf was charged with third degree burglary, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. He was released on $500 non-surety bond and is due in court on Wednesday.

He was arrested at 5:55 a.m. on campus.

Wolf is the Huskies tallest player at 7-feet and was averaging 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13 minutes per game. Wolf is an important inside presence for the Huskies, who host Syracuse on Wednesday. This leaves an already thin frontcourt dramatically undermanned for UConn.

Here’s UConn release announcing his suspension:

STORRS, Conn. — Junior center Enosch Wolf (Goettingen, Germany) has been suspended from the University of Connecticut men’s basketball team following an on-campus incident early Monday morning that resulted in his arrest by university police. The suspension is indefinite, pending the completion of the legal process and a university review process.

“We are aware of the situation concerning Enosch and we are taking the matter very seriously,” UConn head basketball coach Kevin Ollie said. “He has been suspended from the team indefinitely, until the legal and university process is finalized.

“I have spoken to the players on the team previously, and will continue to speak with them, about their conduct both on and off the basketball court. We have high expectations of our student-athletes at UConn, and I expect my players to live up to those standards.”

The university will have no further comment on the matter at this time.
