Major League Soccer released a statement this morning announcing that Crew midfielder Dan Paladini had been suspended from team activities with pay. The league acted due to an incident where police were called on Tuesday, October 28th to Paladini's residence in response to a reported domestic dispute. The statement also notes that no arrests were made at the time of initial police response and the investigation continues. The league was notified of the incident by the team when they were made aware of it.

The Crew added a statement from Crew investor-operator Anthony Precourt to the league's release.

As soon as the club was made aware of the reported domestic dispute, we immediately notified Major League Soccer. We have and will continue to cooperate with the League and local authorities on this matter. We support the suspension of the player from all team and League activities until more information is available.

With the police investigation ongoing, there is no timetable on when Paladini's status might be reassessed. Paladini has been out since suffering a broken leg in mid-September. He has appeared in four games with three starts this season, his first for the Crew.
