Fresno State junior basketball player Karachi Edo, 21, has been suspended from the team as a result of his arrest over the weekend in a case that involved battery charges.

“He is currently suspended from the team,” said Paul Ladwig, Fresno State senior associate athletics director for external relations. “We are aware of the situation. We’re working with authorities, and we’re waiting for all the facts in the case to come forward.”

Fresno County Jail records indicate that Edo was arrested Friday at 6:41 p.m. and released Saturday around 2 a.m. on $5,000 bail.

The length of Edo’s suspension is yet to be determined as the athletic department awaits for the case to continue to unfold.

“[The duration of his suspension] will be determined when the authorities determine what the facts of the case are,” Ladwig said.

Edo, who is known for his highlight reel dunks, was a key component in the Bulldogs’ Mountain West Tournament title run and NCAA Tournament appearance this past season where he averaged 10.1 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.
