According to Collin Brister of HottyToddy.com, Charles Wiley, a defensive end for the Ole Miss Rebels, was taken into custody on Monday and charged with a misdemeanor related to domestic violence.
Daniel Paulling of the Clarion-Ledger was another journalist who reported the news of the occurrence. Brister claims that a female suspect was also taken into custody for the same offense.
As reported by Brister, Hugh Freeze, the head coach of the team, issued a statement in which he said, “We are aware of the problem and recognize the relevant authorities responsible for the incident.”
While we move through with the process, Charles will not be participating in any of the team’s activities. We take occurrences such as this one extremely seriously and will make decisions once the activities that need to be taken have been carried out.
Wiley was a true freshman who played high school basketball at Stockbridge High School in Georgia.
He received four stars as a recruit and was ranked 274th overall among players in the Class of 2016 in the composite rankings of 247Sports.com.
Wiley was also recognized as the 20th best weak-side defensive end in the country and as the 25th best player in the state of Georgia for his class.
He made his commitment to the Rebels in March of 2015, and on January 21, he became an official student at the institution.
