BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer has suspended running back Shai McKenzie following his arrest in a sex case.

An arrest warrant filed in Montgomery County juvenile court shows the 19-year-old McKenzie was charged Monday with having consensual sex with and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Virginia Tech football spokesman Bryan Johnston said Wednesday that McKenzie has been suspended indefinitely from team-related activities.

McKenzie was the Hokies’ third-leading rusher with 269 yards as a freshman. He tore his right ACL against Western Michigan and sat out the rest of the season.

Christiansburg police said in a statement that McKenzie was released from the Montgomery County Jail on $5,000 bond. Court documents didn’t show whether McKenzie had an attorney.

Another Virginia Tech student also was charged in the case.
