Humphrey, the team's second-leading scorer, was arrested a few hours after the Bulldogs lost 67-59 to No. 23 Vanderbilt for their fourth straight defeat. The 20-year-old junior posted a $1,000 bond and was released less than two hours after entering jail, police said.
In November, Humphrey was jailed on a felony weapons charge when police discovered a knife in his dorm room. He was suspended for one game but reinstated after accepting pretrial diversion. That required him to serve 80 hours of community service and stay out of trouble for 18 months.
Coach Dennis Felton was trying to locate Humphrey and had no immediate comment, school spokesman Tim Hix said. Humphrey is averaging 13.1 points, second on the team to Sundiata Gaines.
Coach Dennis Felton already has thrown two key players off the team for unspecified violations of team rules - Takais Brown and Mike Mercer.
