The Wildcats star tailback is facing some off-the-field legal issues.

Arizona Wildcats running back Ka'Deem Carey has been served with a restraining order stemming from an incident on Dec. 26. He was served with the restraint on Wednesday, Jan. 2. It is unclear at this time if Carey was arrested at the time of the incident, although police records show no indication he was taken into custody.

"I've spoken with Ka'Deem and am aware of the case. We take these matters very seriously and will support the authorities however we can. Once more specific information is available, we will act accordingly," Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez said.

UA Athletic Director Greg Byrne also had this to say in an official statement that was released Sunday afternoon:

"The University and Department of Athletics are fully aware of the situation. This is now a matter for the local authorities and we will fully cooperate and assist them as needed. At this point we will have no further comment."

Further details are yet to be released by police officials.

As a sophomore in 2012, Carey had a breakout season in Tucson. He rushed for 1,929 yards, the most of any player in the country. He also rushed for 23 touchdowns. Carey was expected to return to Arizona in the fall and be one of the leading candidates to win the Heisman Trophy Award.
