Ex-USF running back Mike Ford was arrested Tuesday in his hometown of Sarasota and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. According to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office arrest report, Berneta Bean, 31, who called herself an "on and off" girlfriend of Ford and mother to two children by him, told police Ford pushed her and slapped her in the face several times during an argument. Bean told police when she went outside to call 911, Ford grabbed the phone from her and threw it. An arraignment has not been scheduled. Ford, 23, who would have been a senior this season, was dismissed from USF in March for an undisclosed violation.
