Arizona's Carey involved 'incident'

Becoming an All-American running back means you're newsworthy, even if reports are vague and lack details.

So we have reports that Arizona running back Ka'Deem Carey had a protection order issued against him stemming from an incident before Christmas,

Carey was issued the protection order after allegedly being involved in an incident Dec. 23. According to local reports, Carey has not been arrested for this or any other incident.

Then there's this from the Tucson Citizen:

KVOA also reported that Carey filed a harassment injunction that same day against Dana Rambow, the mother of his former girlfriend, Missy Rambow. On-line records confirm that filing, as well as an order of protection against Missy Rambow. Which filings came first on Dec. 26 is not clear.

The hearings on the harassment injunction and the protection order against Missy Rambow were scheduled for Monday morning.

It would appear that we have a he-said, she-said conflict, though the courts and not the police are where this is being battled out.

Arizona released statements from both coach Rich Rodriguez and athletic director Greg Byrne:

Rich Rodriguez statement regarding Ka’Deem Carey:

“I’ve spoken with Ka’Deem and am aware of the case. We take these matters very seriously and will support the authorities however we can. Once more specific information is available, we will act accordingly."

Greg Byrne statement regarding Ka’Deem Carey:

"The university and department of athletics are fully aware of the situation. This is now a matter for the local authorities and we will fully cooperate and assist them as needed. At this point we will have no further comment."

The question now is whether this is just a tempest of court filings due to emotions, or there will be a second chapter to this as details become available.
