The Columbia Police arrested Butterfield Wednesday night for allegedly punching his ex-girlfriend.
Coach Anderson suspended him from the team immediately.
Butterfield is entering his second and senior season for the Tigers. He is charged with suspicion of domestic assault. According to the Columbia Police, it happened at Campus View Apartments at about 9:30 last night. A 20-year old woman said Butterfield punched her in the face. Butterfield told the police that any contact happened by accident.
This is the third in a series of bad incidents for the team. Over the summer, someone shot Demarre Carroll in the foot. And Coach Anderson has already kicked Kalen Grimes off the team. Grimes is accused of assaulting someone with the butt end of a shotgun.
