MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesota Gophers running back Shannon Brooks has been arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic assault.

The Star Tribune reports the 22-year-old senior was arrested at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday in Minneapolis and was booked into the Hennepin County jail about an hour later.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Darcy Horn says the arrest occurred on the same block near campus where Brooks lives.

It’s unclear whether Brooks has an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

Head coach P.J. Fleck says he’s not able to comment on the arrest.

Brooks has more than 2,500 all-purpose yards in his career is working his way back from a knee injury. He traveled to Columbus for Saturday’s game with Ohio State, but did not play in the Gophers’ 30-14 defeat.
