Mizzou defensive end suspended indefinit

COLUMBIA, Mo - Mizzou defensive end Tre Williams was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of second-degree domestic assault. Head coach Barry Odom has suspended him indefinitely from the team.

Williams was in the car with a woman with whom he was in a relationship when the two allegedly got in an argument, Columbia Police Department spokesman Jeff Pitts said. It happened at approximately 1:45 a.m. on Sunday in the 3900 block of S. Providence Road. The victim was driving the car at the time, and she told police Williams became physically aggressive. Officers said there was physical evidence to support the claim.

"We were made aware of the situation yesterday, and Tre was immediately suspended indefinitely from all team activities. We will provide an update if his status changes," Odom said.

Williams' bond was set at $4,500.

Williams is a redshirt sophomore for the Tigers. The former Rock Bridge football standout played in all 12 regular season games for Mizzou, totaling 2.5 sacks and five tackles for loss.
