BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - The Virginia Tech Athletics department released a statement Monday confirming the suspension of one of its players.

The statement said Tyrece Radford has been suspended indefinitely from all men’s basketball activities, effective immediately “for not upholding the high standards Virginia Tech has for its students and athletes.”

According to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Radford was arrested and charged with one count of driving while intoxicated - first offense and one count of concealed weapon carry. He was released January 24 on a $1,000 unsecured bond.

The department said no further comment will be made until the matter is resolved.
