Tyler Olander, a senior forward on the UConn men’s basketball team, has been suspended indefinitely after his arrest on DUI charges.
Olander was pulled over along Route 195 in Mansfield at 10:49 p.m. Saturday. He failed a field sobriety test and was placed under arrest, according to state police.
UConn released a statement on Monday announcing Olander had been suspended for a violation of team rules.
The university will have no further comment, a statement from the University of Connecticut Division of Athletics says.
Olander was charged with operating under the influence, operating an unregistered vehicle and operating without a proper driver's license.
The Mansfield, Connecticut native has played in 102 games at UConn, including 29 straight games last season until breaking his foot.
