Pitt's Randall suspended after arrest for DUI

ACC Videos

Pitt center Derrick Randall has been suspended indefinitely from the basketball team after an early Tuesday morning arrest for driving while intoxicated on Rutgers University's Livingston campus.

Randall was charged with DWI, use of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of a controlled dangerous substance, according to a report by The Daily Record in Parsippany, N.J.

“The incident involving Derrick Randall this morning is not only surprising but incredibly disappointing,” Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said in a statement released by the university. “Although I believe it was out of character for Derrick, he has been indefinitely suspended.”

Randall, a 6-foot-9, 240-pounder, played two seasons at Rutgers before leaving the program after video surfaced showing former coach Mike Rice being abusive to his players. Randall filed a lawsuit against Rutgers in December.

Randall, who has one season of eligibility remaining, averaged 2.4 points and 2.1 rebounds while averaging eight minutes a game last season for Pitt.
