OSU basketball: Michael Weathers suspended indefinitely, facing felony grand larceny charge

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.
