UConn's Nate Miles arrested.

Highly-touted UConn basketball player Nate Miles was arrested Monday night on charges of violating a restraining order, according to the Hartford Courant.

Miles, a freshman, was served with the restraining order at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, and allegedly violated it by calling the protected party just 16 minutes later, according to a report from David Borges of the New Haven Register.

At best, the incident is an inauspicious start to Miles' UConn career. Miles, a combo guard/forward attended five high schools and had a controversial recruitment.

The arrrest is one in a string of embarassing incidents for the basketball team. Last year, Jerome Dyson and Doug Wiggins were both arrested on alcohol-related charges and in 2005, former UConn player Marcus Williams and current UConn point guard A.J. Price were arrested in connection with laptop-thefts.
