Purdue sophomore Martesse Patterson was arrested Wednesday morning on a preliminary charge of battery resulting in serious bodily injury, WLFI reported.

West Lafayette policed investigated the incident that occurred Sept. 7, WLFI reported. Patterson started at left tackle in Purdue's game against Cincinnati Sept. 10. He continued to practice with the team for the next two weeks before missing the game last Saturday against Nevada. Patterson was not at Tuesday's practice, and Coach Darrell Hazell had refused to offer clarity on Patterson's situation other than to say it was a matter that was "day to day."

A no contact order has been issued, as well as a bail set at $10,000 surety or $1,000 cash, WLFI reported.

Hazell has suspended other players over the past three seasons for misdemeanors, including defensive Gelen Robinson and safety Taylor Richards (both OWI) for two games. The battery charge is a felony.
