Hog LB Freddie Fairchild was arrested today on suspicion of third-degree battery and false imprisonment. The incident was with his girlfriend. Head Coach Bobby Petrino has suspended him indefinitely until it has been determined if he has violated team rules.
Fairchild “attacked (the woman) causing injuries to her head, face, extremities and pelvis,” according to a preliminary probable cause statement from a Fayetteville police detective. The complaint said she reported that he would not allow her to leave for several hours.
Fairchild has been in a “domestic relationship” with the women intermittently for over a year, the statement said.
