Daniel Dye has been suspended indefinitely by ARCA following his arrest for alleged felony battery, ARCA announced April 27.
ARCA cited its rulebook section 12-8.1.E.2, a behavioral penalty, as the reasoning for his suspension.
Dye was arrested April 26 in Volusia County, Fla., after allegedly punching a fellow student at Father Lopez Catholic High School in Daytona Beach, Fla., in the groin. You can read more about the allegations here.
Dye was released on April 26 on a cash bond of $2,500.
Dye has not commented publicly on the arrest. According to FOX Sports’ Bob Pockrass, Dye’s attorney, Aaron Delgado, said that Dye will be “completely exonerated.”
Following the suspension, GMS tweeted that it was “aware of the current situation surrounding Daniel Dye” and that the family was “cooperating with local law enforcement. No further comment will be made on the subject until more information becomes available.”
