UNLV’s Dwayne Morgan was suspended from the basketball team on Wednesday due to an incident involving the police from over the weekend.

According to a report from FOX5 in Las Vegas, Morgan was involved in an altercation with a cab driver.

“We are aware of the situation regarding UNLV men’s basketball student-athlete Dwayne Morgan,” the school said, “and are continuing to gather all of the facts. Coach (Marvin) Menzies has met with Dwayne and he has been suspended indefinitely from all basketball activities.”

A former five-star recruit, Morgan averaged 9.4 points and 7.3 rebounds as a junior this past season, although injuries limited him to just eight games.
