Alyn Breed under review after being granted bail for domestic dispute

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — After being held without bail Monday, Providence College men’s basketball player Alyn Breed was granted bail after a weekend domestic dispute off-campus.

“The complaining witness has become uncooperative,” prosecutors said in court Tuesday.

A judge set Breed’s bail at $25,000 and a no-contact order with his ex-girlfriend, who’s 33 years old and from California. He has to also surrender his passport and possess no guns, as well as sign a waiver of extradition and can travel to Rhode Island and Georgia, his home state.

Monday, during his arraignment, concerns were raised about the victim in the case against Breed and their recanting allegations against the Providence College student since his arrest Saturday.

Prosecutors allege that Breed broke into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment Saturday morning, pointed a gun at her, and demanded that she give him her phone. They also say Breed took the victim’s car sometime before Friday night and Saturday morning without her permission.

On Tuesday in court, it was revealed the victim had walked back some of her allegations against Breed, saying she was intoxicated at the time of the incident and didn’t remember what happened.

The prosecution also confirmed the gun in question wasn’t recovered after searches of Breed’s dorm and trash. A search warrant has been issued for the victim’s cell phone.

Providence College issued a release Tuesday evening stating Breed is still under review as a part of its student disciplinary process.

Breed will not return to campus at this time and he remains suspended from the Men’s Basketball team and from all PC Athletics facilities and events, their release read.
