STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Police say University of Connecticut sophomore tailback Lyle McCombs has been arrested and accused of yelling, pushing and spitting at his girlfriend during an argument outside a residential hall.

Police said Saturday that the 166-pound McCombs was charged with second-degree breach of peace. The fight occurred just after midnight Friday on campus in Storrs.

Police say the 20-year-old McCombs was released after he posted a $500 bond.

McCombs, from New York City's Staten Island, had a breakout season as a freshman, carrying the ball more than 275 times for more than 1,100 yards.

McCombs was playing in UConn's game Saturday at Rutgers.
