Breaking News: LaMichael James Arrested February 17, 2010 By KEZI 9 News Staff SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Another Oregon Duck football player gets into trouble. University of Oregon Running Back LaMichael James has been arrested for domestic violence by Springfield Police. He was booked at the Lane County Jail just before three o'clock Wednesday morning. (Update:) Bail was initially set at $100,000, and efforts to get the amount reduced to $40,000 were unsuccessful. James entered a plea of not guilty, and was eventually released just before 4 PM Friday, but required to wear an ankle bracelet for electronic surveillance for five weeks, until he returns for a pretrial hearing on March 24. Area police made every effort at their disposal to deny or delay James release. The identity of the "girlfriend" accuser has yet to be make public. UO Cheerleader Courtney Eckhart, who identified herself as James' girlfriend, (not the one filing a complaint) has spoken out in support of James.
