YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — An Eastern Michigan University basketball player has been suspended after his 19-year-old girlfriend said he choked her during an argument at an off-campus apartment.

Glenn Bryant was arraigned Wednesday in Ypsilanti District Court on assault by strangulation and aggravated domestic violence charges.

The 22-year-old from Detroit was arrested Monday.

Interim Athletic Director Melody Reifel Werner says in a statement that Bryant’s suspension under the school’s student-athlete discipline policy will continue “until the charges are dropped, dismissed or otherwise resolved.”

A May 7 preliminary examination is scheduled. The Associated Press could find no listed telephone number for Bryant.

Bryant transferred in 2011 from the University of Arkansas to Eastern Michigan in Ypsilanti. He played last year and averaged just over 10 points per game after sitting out the 2011-2012 season.
