CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. | The president of the University of Virginia says the school had not been informed of the previous arrest of a men’s lacrosse player now accused in the slaying of member of the women’s team.

President John Casteen addressed the media Wednesday on the slaying of Yeardley Love. George Huguely is charged with first-degree murder in her death.

Huguely was arrested by police in Lexington in November 2008 after resisting arrest on public intoxication. Police say they used a stun gun to restrain him.

Casteen said there is a gap in the law regarding informing colleges and universities when students are arrested off campus.
