AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State Cyclones reserve guard Charles Boozer was arrested over the weekend after a woman told police he slapped and kicked her.

Police commander Mike Brennan says Boozer was charged with simple assault, a misdemeanor, on Saturday in Ames. A complaint accuses Boozer of slapping the woman in the face, pushing her to the ground and kicking her in the side.

Police say the woman had red marks on her face and a scratch on her leg. Police say Boozer admitted arguing with the woman and pushing her. Boozer, a junior from Raleigh, N.C. who had season-ending surgery in January, posted a cash bond of $300 and was released.

Cyclones spokesman Mike Green says the school is gathering facts about the situation. Boozer, the younger brother of Utah Jazz star Carlos Boozer, did not immediately return a message Monday.
