Dragovic update

Here is the story I just wrote for online. Will update as soon as I have more information.

UCLA forward Nikola Dragovic was arrested Friday afternoon on suspicion of battery on a person he co-habitated with, said April Harding, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department.
Dragovic, 20, was not at UCLA’s exhibition basketball game against Biola, and Harding believed that he was still in jail and had not posted $20,000 bail.
“He was arrested at 4:20 p.m. today in the 3,200 block of Overland,” Harding said. “He ended a relationship with his ex-girlfriend, and he went back to the apartment to retrieve his belongings. They were thrown on the front porch and an argument erupted. He became angry and pushed her down to the floor.”
A spokesman for UCLA said coach Ben Howland would address the arrest after the game.
“We haven’t had a chance to look at the facts,” said Marc Dellins, associate athletic director for sports information. “We just found out about an hour ago, so until we have all the information, we can’t make any decisions.”
