Report: Washington State's Casto arrested

By Diamond Leung

Washington State sophomore forward DeAngelo Casto was reportedly arrested for assault early this morning.

Casto, a 6-foot-8 sophomore, earned All-Pac-10 honorable mention honors and was the Cougars' leading rebounder this season. He averaged 10.7 points and seven rebounds per game.

From KXLY.com:

Pullman police arrested, cited and released Casto for 4th Degree Misdemeanor Assault after responding to a fight in a home on B Street on College Hill just after midnight.

A 21-year-old man at the house said Casto threw him against a wall and punched him after he was denied entry to a party. The man had a cut on his face and didn’t require medical treatment.

Police confirm that alcohol was involved.

WSU Sports Information Director Bill Steven says the basketball coaching staff is aware of the situation and will take appropriate action if and when it’s warranted.
