Arizona Wildcats’ All-American running back Ka’Deem Carey will appear in Tucson City Court at 10 a.m. today for a pretrial hearing on charges of disorderly conduct and assault.

Carey’s charges stem from an incident on Dec. 23, 2012 with his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Marissa Rambow.

In addition, Carey was kicked out of McKale Center on Jan. 23 during an Arizona basketball game against UCLA, and a few days earlier he had been ticketed for driving with expired registration and no proof of insurance.

Those two incidents are separate from the charges at today’s hearing.

Carey participated during the Wildcats’ spring drills, though he was never made available to the media.

“Ka’Deem’s worked hard,” Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez said prior to the Wildcats’ spring game on April 13. “Ka’Deem’s had a lot to prove both on and off the field, and so far the entire spring he’s shown that.

“As far as things we’ve asked him to do on and off the field, he’s worked really hard to prove himself all over again.”

Carey was a consensus All-American in 2012 after he ran for 1,929 yards and 23 touchdowns.
