(Updated: Nov. 18, 2016 - Charges against Michael Wyche were dismissed, Miami-Dade County court records show)

Statement by Wyche: 

I apologize to every kid that looked up to me. I allowed myself to be put in a situation to be misinterpreted. I'm happy the truth finally came to light. I'm extremely aware of the magnitude of domestic violence, which I've never committed in my life. I've never been that type of person if anyone truly knows me. I just appreciate everyone, my family, friends, and most importantly my fans that stuck by me. I'm happy I get a chance to continue playing the game that saved my life from the streets.

Miami Hurricanes DT Michael Wyche was arrested and booked into jail early Wednesday morning as the Palm Beach Post's Matt Porter first reported.

According to police, Wyche and his girlfriend allegedly got into an argument over sleeping arrangements. The argument escalated to a point where Wyche allegedly pushed his girlfriend and threw her onto a bed several times. 

Wyche's girlfriend told police that he also threw her against the wall, one of the times so hard she hit the back of her head. 

Police said Wyche's girlfriend had a bloody lip and torn clothing. She was treated at the scene. 

Wyche and his girlfriend have had a relationship for about five years, according to police. They also have a child. 

Wyche was being held on a misdemeanor, domestic violence charge.  

The Miami Hurricanes said Wyche has been suspended indefinitely following the arrest.
