Some serious charges have been brought to the Dallas keeper

MLS: Montreal Impact at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

This afternoon news broke that MLS has suspended FC Dallas starting goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez following a report being made to the Frisco Police Department alleging incidents of domestic abuse.

FC Dallas issued the following statement:

Earlier this week, we learned of allegations involving goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez.

FC Dallas takes these matters extremely seriously and fully supports the league’s swift action to suspend the player while an investigation takes place. We continue to work closely with Major League Soccer regarding this. As this is an ongoing investigation, FC Dallas will not have further comment at this time.

Obviously these are very serious charges brought on to Gonzalez and the club, player and the league will cooperate with law enforcement agencies as they conduct their investigation.
