Michael Weathers, an Oklahoma State guard on the men’s basketball team, has been suspended indefinitely because of an arrest for grand larceny, CBS Sports’ Kyle Boone reported.
Weathers, a redshirt sophomore, is accused of stealing a wallet that held a debit card, credit card, school ID, insurance card and other objects Sept. 9 at J.R. Murphy’s, a Stillwater bar. The total estimated stolen value is $85, according to the incident report.
“Michael was suspended from team activities as soon as we learned of the incident,” OSU coach Mike Boynton said in a statement. “He remains suspended indefinitely.”
Weathers posted recognizance bond on Sept. 10 and arraigned on Sept. 11. He has a preliminary hearing set for Oct. 1.
Weathers transferred from Miami (Ohio) and sat out last season because of NCAA rules. He won 2016-17 MAC Freshman of the Year, averaging 16.7 points, 4.8 assists and 1.9 steals per contest. Weathers was expected to be a starter for this season’s team.
