Derrick Randall arrested, suspended
Randall, who was also charged with use of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of a controlled dangerous substance, was arrested on the Rutgers University campus at 2:45 a.m. Tuesday, according to the Bergen Record.
"The incident involving Derrick Randall this morning is not only surprising but incredibly disappointing," Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said in a statement Tuesday. "Although I believe it was out of character for Derrick, he has been indefinitely suspended."
Randall transferred from Rutgers in 2013 after video surfaced of then-coach Mike Rice shoving, kicking and berating his players during practice. Randall filed a lawsuit against Rutgers in December, claiming he was suffering from learning disabilities and experienced emotional trauma from Rice's behavior.
Randall, who has one year of eligibility remaining, averaged 2.1 points, 2.4 rebounds and 8.6 minutes in 36 games last season.
