Jamal Price

The New Mexico football team reinstated Jamal Price after the senior guard agreed to enter into the Bernalillo County District Attorney’s Pre-Prosecution Probation Program.

Albuquerque police arrested Price last month after an altercation with his girlfriend Khadijah Shumpert, a UNM women’s basketball player, according to police reports. Price was charged with breaking and entering and conspiracy to commit a fourth degree felony. No domestic charges were filed.

Head coach Bob Davie suspended Price after he learned of the incident.

“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,” Davie said in a statement. “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.”

According to a UNM news release, Price’s term of probation is for a period of 12 to 24 months.
