Illinois guard Kendrick Nunn was arrested on Thursday, according to a report from the News-Gazette.

Nunn was charged with domestic battery for allegedly striking a woman in her apartment on Wednesday evening. He was arrested on Thursday, according to the report, after turning himself in.

Nunn is the fourth Illinois player to be arrested since August. Darius Paul was arrested during the team’s trip to France for public intoxication, vandalism and resisting arrest. It was the second time Paul was attested for public intoxication and the second time he was subsequently dismissed from the team.

In February, Leron Black was arrested for allegedly brandishing a knife at a club in Urbana, Illinois, while Jaylon Tate was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery last week.
