FAYETTEVILLE (40/29 News) - Arkansas Head Baseball Coach Dave Van Horn suspended right-handed pitcher Thomas Altimont Friday after he was arrested on charges of kidnapping and domestic battery.

Altimont is a junior who transferred from McLennan Community College, according the Arkansas Razorbacks website.

Van Horn released this statement:

"Thomas Altimont has been suspended indefinitely from our team, effectively immediately. We will take the time to review the matter thoroughly and make any further determinations next week.

"We have high standards for our student-athletes and they will conduct themselves appropriately. We stress accountability in the University of Arkansas baseball program and endangering the safety of others and other inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated."
