COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -Missouri senior forward Kalen Grimes, the Tigers' leading rebounder last season, was suspended indefinitely on Monday for violating team policy.
The action comes after Grimes, of St. Louis, was involved in a weekend incident in Florissant. Florissant police deferred questions until Tuesday morning.
``I am extremely disappointed in the actions of Kalen Grimes,'' coach Mike Anderson said. ``Kalen will not be allowed to work out with our team and must take the necessary steps to not only earn the trust of his coaches and teammates, but the trust of Missouri's alumni and fan base.''
Missouri began a ``zero-tolerance'' policy after junior forward DeMarre Carroll, a highly regarded transfer from Vanderbilt, was shot in the ankle last week during a disturbance outside a Columbia nightclub.
``Although the circumstances surrounding both Kalen and DeMarre differ a great deal, I understand the cumulative effect these events can have on the perception of a program and want to assure our fans that these incidents will be dealt with appropriately,'' Anderson said.
Charges have not been filed against Grimes, and details surrounding this weekend's incident are under investigation by the Florissant Police Department. Due to the open nature of the case, the Department of Athletics said it must defer questions to Florissant authorities.
Grimes started 24 games for the Tigers (18-12) last season and averaged 7.0 points and 5.6 rebounds.
