Given arrest rates on big-time university basketball teams, it’s not surprising that police have begun arresting players at their games.

When [an Old Dominion University player] didn’t show up to court [on a DUI charge], an arrest warrant was issued.

[A] Virginia Beach detective drove to the Ted Constant Center Wednesday night, knowing [the player] would be there.

After warming up with the team, [the player] came off the court and was arrested in the back of the arena.

Yes. For the sake of fan and donor morale, it’s much better to arrest them in the back of arenas. Seeing team members arrested on court before games would be a downer.
