TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida State wide receiver has been
suspended for his part in a fight that took place on campus last
fall.

Richard Goodman turned himself into the Leon county Jail on
Tuesday after he was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly
weapon causing great bodily harm. He posted bond and was released.

Goodman is the third football player charged in the fight. Two
others were charged with battery in November 2008.

Coach Bobby Bowden said Wednesday that Goodman is suspended
indefinitely "until the matter has been resolved."

Authorities say Goodman threw a chair that struck a woman in the
face during a fight that broke out between Florida State football
players and members of the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity last fall. The
woman suffered extensive injuries.
