A University of Connecticut basketball player issued an apology after his arraignment on charges he roughed up his girlfriend inside her campus apartment.
Junior center Enosch Wolf appeared in Rockville Superior Court Wednesday afternoon following his arrest on Monday morning. His case was continued until March 20, which is after the UConn basketball season ends.
In a hallway outside the courtroom, Wolf addressed reporters saying, "I'm sorry and apologize for what I put the university through, what I put my coaches through, my teammates, my family."
He declined to answer questions about the Monday morning incident.
Wolf refused to leave the victim's apartment inside the LaFlesche Building on campus when asked to do so, according to police. He grabbed her hair, pushed her head, and knocked her glasses off her face with his hand, police said.
He was suspended from the basketball team following his arrest. In a statement released by the university, head basketball coach Kevin Ollie said, "We are aware of the situation concerning Enosch and we are taking the matter very seriously. He has been suspended from the team indefinitely, until the legal and university process is finalized."
In court, the judge issued a partial protective order for the victim. It prohibits Wolf from assaulting, threatening, or harassing her. It does not ban all contact between them.
Wolf is charged with criminal trespassing, disorderly conduct, and burglary. He is not charged with assault.
He was released without having to post any bond.
