Nation's top rusher hit with order of protection

The SportsXchange

Arizona running back Ka'Deem Carey, the nation's leading rusher this past season, was served with an order of protection on Wednesday, KVOA-TV in Tucson reported.

An order of protection, according to the Tucson Citizen, is a court order intended to prevent acts of domestic violence against a person who believes she or a family member may become victims of domestic violence.

The order stems from an incident that occurred the morning of Dec. 23.

Carey, a sophomore this season, led the nation in rushing with 1,923 yards and an average of 148.4 yards per game.

"I've spoken with Ka'Deem and am aware of the case," Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said in a statement, according to "We take these matters very seriously and will support the authorities however we can. Once more specific information is available, we will act accordingly."
