University of Miami suspends DL Michael Wyche after battery arrest

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Miami reserve defensive tackle Michael Wyche has been suspended indefinitely from the football team after being charged with battery in what police said was a domestic violence incident.

He was booked into jail at 4:50 a.m. Wednesday -- his 23rd birthday -- and being held on $1,500 bond, with court records showing his arraignment is currently scheduled for Nov. 18. Wyche was also ordered to stay away from the alleged victim.

The 6-foot-4, 345-pound Wyche appeared in four games for Miami this season. He did not play in any of the last three Hurricane games. He did not have an attorney and was being assigned a public defender, according to court records.

Miami plays Saturday at No. 22 Duke, the first game for interim coach Larry Scott.
