The attorney for Baylor guard LaceDarius Dunn says the university in Waco has cleared the star player to return to classes while he faces allegations that he broke his girlfriend's jaw in a domestic dispute.

Attorney Vikram Deivanayagam said Dunn would be in class Thursday, a day after a Baylor disciplinary panel lifted a suspension imposed last week.

Dunn's attorney says the leading scorer from last year's NCAA regional finalist remains suspended from the team because he still faces a felony aggravated assault charge.

Police say Dunn's girlfriend, Lacharlesla Edwards, had her jaw broken in two places Sept. 27. She says her jaw wasn't broken and Dunn didn't hit her. Edwards wants charges dropped and Dunn reinstated.
