ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Jamal Price, a senior offensive guard, has been reinstated to the University of New Mexico football team after being accepted into the Bernalillo County District Attorney’s Pre-Prosecution Probation Program.
Price was arrested late last month after an altercation with his girlfriend, UNM women’s basketball player Khadijah Shumpert. Price was charged with breaking and entering and conspiracy to commit breaking and entering. No domestic violence charges were filed.
Price was suspended from the team by coach Bob Davie after the incident.
Regarding Price’s reinstatement, Davie said in a statement: “Jamal has taken full responsibility for his actions. He has accepted all of the requirements of the program, which include remaining enrolled in college, counseling and community service. He has made a commitment that there will be no further incidents. It is my understanding that Jamal will not be formally charged and is reinstated to the team.”
Price’s term of probation is for a period of 12 to 24 months, according to a UNM news release.
