Dismissed Missouri forward Zach Price was charged Thursday with felony tampering in the first degree for defacing a motor vehicle, according to the Boone County Prosecutor’s Office.

According to the statute, Price could face up to seven years in jail and up to a $5,000 fine.

Price, 20, was arrested April 3 on suspicion of second-degree domestic assault and second-degree assault for ramming his car into another vehicle near Rock Bridge Elementary.

That same day, former Tigers basketball player Earnest Ross, 23, sought on order of protection against Price, which was later dismissed when Ross didn’t appear in court.

Price also was arrested during the early-morning hours April 3 for third-degree domestic assault and third-degree assault after allegedly punching a 23-year-old male roommate and shoving to the ground a 23-year-old woman who tried to intervene. The same two people were the alleged victims in the car-ramming incident.

Prosecutors are continuing to review further charges.
