Patterson basketball standout Aquille Carr, a rising senior and two-time Baltimore Sun All-Metro Player of the Year, will not participate in this weekend's Under Armour Elite 24 national high school showcase in Venice Beach, Calif., following his arrest Friday on a domestic assault charge.
Carr, 18, was arrested Friday morning and then booked and held Saturday on charges of second-degree assault and reckless endangerment until posting $50,000 bond.
The Under Armour Elite 24, set for Friday and Saturday, includes an all-star game and slam dunk contest featuring some of the country's top high school talent, with both events being aired on ESPNU. Gracie Blackburn, an associate manager for college sports PR at ESPN, confirmed that Carr is no longer a participant. ESPN PR declined further comment. Updated rosters -- including Carr's replacement -- will be released tomorrow.
According to police records, Carr is accused of throwing his former girlfriend to the ground outside a Southeast Baltimore trade school and kicking and punching her. The alleged victim, identified in court papers as Treshonda Williams, 20, is the mother of Carr's infant daughter, Averi, who was born in March.
