— Missouri baseball player Gavin Stark was arrested Monday night on suspicion of second-degree assault, felony resisting arrest, first-degree property damage and first-degree burglary.

Stark, whose bond was set at $22,500, has been suspended indefinitely, per university policy regarding any player expected to be charged with a felony.

“We are aware of the situation involving Gavin Stark and we’re trying to do our best to get details about what happened,” Missouri coach Tim Jamieson said in a statement.

Stark, a senior first baseman/third baseman who graduated from Lee’s Summit North, joined Missouri last season after playing for Fort Scott Community College. He is hitting .091 in 13 games this season for the Tigers, who are 15-28.
