An off-field incident has cast a bit of a pall over Marshall’s clinching of its first-ever Conference USA division title.

The Huntington Herald-Dispatch is reporting that running back Kevin Grooms was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with domestic battery and obstruction.  What led to the incident, which occurred less than 12 hours after the Herd had put the finishing touches on a win over East Carolina, has yet to be detailed.

In a press release sent out this morning, Marshall acknowledged the incident and stated the back has been indefinitely suspended by the football program.

“We are aware of the situation and are handling it appropriately and internally,” the school said in a statement.

This is the second arrest for Grooms the past seven months.  In late April, Grooms was charged with underage consumption and obstruction.

Grooms is currently third on the team with 503 yards rushing and six rushing touchdowns.

    Both incidents there was an “obstruction” charge?

    Anyhoo, must not have learned anything from the first incident…
