Report: Charges filed against former Missouri center Zach Price

Apr 25, 2014, 11:56 PM EST

Charges have been filed against former Missouri center Zach Price after the 6-foot-10 center was arrested two times in one day earlier in April. Price is facing tampering in the first degree, Boone County assistant prosecuting attorney Jessica Meredith said Thursday to the Columbia Daily Tribune.

Here’s the outlook for Price as Steve Walentik from the Columbia Daily Tribune went in-depth with Price’s details:

 The charge stems from Price allegedly defacing an automobile in an incident in which he was accused of ramming his car into one driven by former teammate Earnest Ross at least twice on April 2. It is a class C felony which carries a potential sentence of seven years in prison.

Meredith said the prosecutor’s office is still investigating and additional charges could be brought against Price, who was twice arrested on suspicion of assault in a pair of incidents with Ross between the afternoon of April 2 and the early morning hours of April 3.

After the incidents and multiple arrests, Ross went for an order of protection against Price but that was later dismissed. Price is already facing a class C felony and additional charges could be filed, so this isn’t a promising start for him in this case.

Price was dismissed from Missouri on April 10th and head coach Frank Haith later left for Tulsa.
