Arizona Wildcats running back Orlando Bradford was arrested Wednesday and subsequently dismissed from the team, according to Michael Lev of the Arizona Daily Star (via AZCentral.com).

Lev cited Tucson Police Department spokesman Sgt. Pete Dugan, who said Bradford was charged with seven different felony counts of domestic violence—four for aggravated assault and three for kidnapping.

Dugan noted that the charges are for multiple alleged crimes that occurred over the course of several days.

On Thursday, Bradford was accused of domestic violence by a second woman and charged with four new counts of domestic violence, per Caitlin Schmidt of the Arizona Daily Star. 

The woman contacted police Wednesday morning, and Michael Coppinger of USA Today reported that officers found the woman with "obvious injuries, and she claimed Bradford assaulted her several times over the past few days."

Bradford was a sophomore on the football team. According to Lev, he was a co-starter with Nick Wilson on Arizona's depth chart. He had five carries for 16 yards on the season and ran for 208 yards and three scores a year ago.

The Wildcats are 1-1 on the season and play Hawaii on Saturday before opening Pac-12 play against Washington on Sept. 24.
