Terrell's attorney, Mike Grace, said in a statement issued Monday through the school that Terrell was arrested by Winston-Salem Police at about 3 a.m. Saturday.
Grace says the circumstances of the arrest and other signs indicate that Terrell "suffers from a serious medical condition which requires immediate attention."
In the statement, Terrell apologized and said he will spend the next few months rebuilding his life and hopes to play college basketball again. Coach Jeff Bzdelik says Terrell is "at an important crossroads" and wishes him well.
Terrell started 18 of 32 games as a freshman last season and averaged 11 points.
