Charge: Aggravated Battery Causing Great Bodily Harm
New Mexico State University first base Hoku Nohara was arrested Tuesday (April 5, 2011) in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Nohar was arrested for allegedly striking fellow teammate Shaleese Javillo in the face and then chocking her nearly to the point of unconsciousness. The incident occurred at their apartment when Javillo confronted Nohara about unspecified rumors which led to a verbal argument. Then, the argument turned physical when Nohara allegedly threw Javillo into a wall, struck her in the face and put her in a choke hold.
Nohara, a senior, was later released on a $2,000 bond.
