Florida State offensive lineman Josh Ball reportedly received a suspension from a university judicial panel following allegations of domestic violence.

On Tuesday, Ira Schoffel of Warchant.com reported the length of the FSU ban and Ball's ability to appeal the ruling are unclear.

Sandra Sellers, an ex-girlfriend of Ball, filed a petition in September alleging "three physical attacks" during their relationship.

"He is a violent person and I'm scared he's going to take it too far," she wrote.

In November, Sellers and Ball reached a four-year joint resolution that includes a court order for Ball to remain at least 500 feet away from his former girlfriend's home and her parents' home as well as her church, job and school, Tallahassee Community College, per Safid Deen of the Orlando Sentinel.

The FSU lineman wasn't forced to admit or deny the allegations as part of the deal.

Ball's availability for the Seminoles' 2018 season, which is scheduled to begin Sept. 3 against Virginia Tech, is unknown following the school suspension.
