BOISE, Idaho — Boise State running back Robert Mahone has been suspended from the football team following his arrest Monday on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. 

On Tuesday afternoon, KTVB obtained Boise police's report on Mahone's arrest, which briefly details how he allegedly grabbed and shoved his ex-girlfriend, who Mahone has a child with.

According to Boise police, Mahone was arrested shortly after 5 p.m. at a home near North Allumbaugh Street and West Fairview Avenue after a report of a "domestic disturbance" at the home.

The police report redacted the victim's name but recounts her what she told police prior to Mahone's arrest. 

Mahone and the victim were allegedly arguing when he started throwing her belongings and keeping them away from her. She also told police that Mahone had grabbed her and shoved her to the ground, leaving bruises on her arm and a missing pinky fingernail.

He was booked into the Ada County Jail on one count of misdemeanor domestic battery in the presence of a child.

Boise State released a brief state Monday night, saying, "Robert Mahone has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities."

The senior was one of the Broncos' top two running backs last season, appearing in 13 games, including seven starts.

He rushed for a career-high 142 yards on 24 carries and had two touchdowns in the 2019 season-opener against Florida State.
