AMES, IOWA (AP) - Iowa State center Jordan Railey has been suspended indefinitely by coach Fred Hoiberg following his arrest for fighting in public.

Ames police commander Jim Robinson says officers saw Railey throw a punch at another man just after midnight on Welch Ave., a popular restaurant and bar district for students.

Robinson says Railey was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct early Thursday after walking away from officers.

Railey, a 6-foot-11 native of Beaverton, Ore., averaged two points a game as a freshman last season.


Hoiberg says in a statement that he’s still gathering information on the incident but is disappointed in Railey’s behavior since it was a second offense.

Railey was also suspended by Hoiberg in January for violating team rules after a single-car accident early on New Year’s Day.
