STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut forward Tyler Olander has been charged with DUI and suspended from the basketball team indefinitely.
Connecticut state police say Olander was pulled over Saturday near the Storrs campus and charged with operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, operating an unregistered motor vehicle and operating a vehicle in violation of license classification.
Police said Olander failed a field sobriety test. No other details were released.
UConn spokesman Mike Enright says Olander was suspended Monday for violating unspecified team rules.
The 21-year-old, 6-foot-10 senior from Mansfield, Conn., was barred from team activities for a month earlier this year after being charged with trespassing in Panama City, Fla., while on spring break. He agreed to a fine and community service in that case.
