As Ka’Deem Carey prepares to defend his 2012 rushing title, he’ll have one less off-field situation lingering over his shoulder.

According to the Arizona Daily Star, all charges related to a domestic violence incident involving the Arizona running back and his pregnant girlfriend have been dropped.  In December, Carey was charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct as well as being slapped with an order of protection.

“A key witness for the prosecution is unavailable , and even if the witness were available, there is no substantial likelihood that a judge would convict Mr. Carey,” a statement from the city of Tucson read in explaining the charges being dropped.

Carey, who participated in spring practice this year, led the nation in rushing in 2012 with a school-record 1,929 yards.  His 23 touchdowns were also a school record.

    He knocked up his girl friend and now “A key witness for the prosecution is unavailable….”. How convenient for this piece of garbage! I’m sick of these colleges masquerading athletes as students when they are thugs!! This girl is lucky to be alive but she’s a low-life just like her boy friend who got her pregnant. Yea, no need to wait til we graduate, let’s just have kids because sex is fun and it’ll be nice having another mistake around so we can perpetuate the cycle.

    Gamecocker….Steven Garcia….every program has them and yours has had one of the best. What was his final dui count? Get over yourself, all you do is hate on this board, more often than not ignorantly. Find something to do on this Saturday.
