CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Miami linebacker Ramon Buchanan is facing felony counts of resisting arrest with violence and battery, as well as three other misdemeanor charges after being arrested last week.

He has been suspended indefinitely by Hurricanes coach Al Golden. The Palm Beach Post first reported details of the arrest and suspension.

The charges against Buchanan were filed in Miami-Dade County Court on Friday. Buchanan was released pending an April 18 hearing.

Golden called the incident “out of character.” A Miami police spokeswoman said the arrest report was not available late Monday.

Court records show Buchanan also faces misdemeanor charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence.

Buchanan had 54 tackles in 13 games for Miami last season.
