Willingboro, New Jersey native Kamal Johnson, the Temple football player arrested on kidnapping and other charges, will not be allowed to practice or play with the team, the university announced Monday.
In a statement, Temple University says Johnson was charged with criminal offenses involving another student.
"Considering all of the circumstances, we deem it in the best interests of everyone involved that Mr. Johnson should not practice or compete with the football team until this situation is resolved," a statement issued Monday said.
The university says his status as a student and his scholarship status have not changed.
"When the charges are resolved or if circumstances otherwise change, the University will consider the matter further," the statement read.
Police say Johnson turned himself in over the weekend in connection to an incident that occurred at his girlfriend's North Philadelphia apartment.
Not the prettiest Friday, but we're ready for a great weekend. Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. After an early high in the upper sixties, temperatures fall & winds pick up out of the chillier northwest. Right now the Memorial Day Weekend looks sunny and cool with highs in the low to mid 60s on Saturday, in the 70s Sunday & Monday. Cooler temps at the shore.
