Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

The Reno police department released a statement on what happened to Nevada running back Chris Solomon.

It was reported that on Jan. 19 that Nevada Wolf Pack running back Chris Solomon was arrested on first-degree battery charges, and then head coach Brian Polian announced that Solomon would be suspended from the team.

Tuesday morning Reno police Lt. William Rulla released a statement on Solomon and the arrest:

"On January 19, 2014, at around 4:00 a.m., Reno Police officers responded to the 4900 block of West 7th Street on a call for service of a family disturbance. Mr. Solomon and his girlfriend both reside at a residence in this area. There was evidence that indicated Mr. Solomon had battered his girlfriend, as she had sustained injuries to her person. REMSA personnel were requested to respond and evaluate Mr. Solomon's girlfriend, which they did. Based on the injuries and the evidence on scene, Mr. Solomon was arrested for Domestic Battery (1st Offense) and he was subsequently booked at the Washoe County Detention Facility."

Things are not looking good for Solomon for his personal future, as well as future with the Nevada football program.
