Charges dropped against UConn center Wolf

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Prosecutors on Wednesday dropped all charges against Connecticut center Enosch Wolf stemming from a February domestic violence arrest on campus.

Rockville Superior Court Judge Sheila Huddleston entered what is known as a ``nolle,'' meaning the state has decided not to pursue the charges. Wolf's attorney, Robert Britt, said prosecutors indicated they were satisfied with the results of personal counseling Wolf received as part of a program run by the court's Family Division.

``I'm happy that the court part is resolved,'' Wolf told reporters outside the courtroom. ``I still have to focus on my schoolwork, get all my finals done. I will keep staying in the counseling for myself, just because it has a positive effect on me.''

The 7-foot-1 junior from Goettingen, Germany, was arrested on Feb. 11 and charged with third-degree burglary, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. Police said he had refused to leave the campus apartment of a female friend and got into a physical confrontation with her.

He ``grabbed the hair of the victim and pushed her head,'' according to a police report. ``Wolf also knocked the glasses off of the victim's face with his hand. Wolf continued to remain in the apartment and was subsequently arrested by police.''

Britt said alcohol was involved, and that Wolf has also addressed that issue.

``There will be no criminal record,'' Britt said. ``His focus now is school.''

Wolf was suspended indefinitely from the basketball team following his arrest. He remains under suspension while the university review of the incident continues, said Warde Manuel, the school's athletic director.

``The university obviously has a process as well, and then it will kick to coach (Kevin) Ollie and me and we'll have a conversation and see where it stands,'' he said.

Ollie said he believes Wolf has done a good job addressing the issues that led to his arrest.

``I just want him to continue to change and get better,'' Ollie said. ``So that when he's in that situation again, he knows how to handle it a little bit better. I think that's what he's doing and I'm very happy for him.''

Wolf, who is from Goettingen, Germany, was a key contributor off the bench for the Huskies, following the transfer of Alex Oriakhi to Missouri after the 2012 season. He has averaged 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 22 games, starting three of them. He missed the team's final eight games while under suspension.

``I did this to myself, and it's a big lesson learned,'' he said.
