Ra'Shede Hageman of the Minnesota Golden Gophers was arrested and cited for disorderly conduct on Thursday. For more on the Golden Gophers, go to The Daily Gopher.

Minnesota Golden Gophers junior defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman was arrested early Thursday morning, according to the Pioneer Press. He was released on a $50 bail and has a court date for his citation on May 24. He was cited for misdemeanor disorderly conduct, according to the report.

It doesn't seem nearly as serious as some other things that players have been doing lately, as Gophers spokeman Garry Bowman defended Hageman, as per the article from the Pioneer Press:

Gophers spokesman Garry Bowman said Hageman was breaking up a fight early Thursday morning at Sally's Saloon & Eatery near campus. Minneapolis police confirmed Hageman was arrested at 712 Washington Ave. SE.

That being said, there could still be discipline from the Gophers at this point, but that will be up to head coach Jerry Kill. Hageman is expected to contribute in a big way this season, taking over a starting position on the defensive line and becoming a leader. That would certainly fit in line with trying to break up a fight.

It's not the first time Hageman has been facing discipline from a school - as Hageman was suspended for three games in 2010 by coach Jeff Horton for academic reasons.
