This is just breaking in the Oregonian:
LaMichael James, star running back for the Oregon Ducks, is in Lane County Jail, arrested Wednesday morning on domestic violence charges.
James has been charged with assault-4, which is a misdemeanor that carries a potential one-year prison term, as well as strangulation and menacing.
Obviously this is developing right now. This is happening at a time when there is uncertainty re. Jeremiah Masoli's involvement in off field issues (have not seen any clear cut story on it, so if anyone has any specific that we haven't pointed at beyond what we blogged here, let me know).
Recently also, Oregon's kicker Rob Beard was charged with fourth-degree assault in connection with an ncident that put Beard in the hospital. Beard was charged with attacking a 19-year-old woman during the fight, which included 20 to 40 people (according to police).
A very interesting early off season to say the least up in Eugene.
