STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi State freshman guard Nick Weatherspoon has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence over the weekend.

Online arrest records for the Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Office show that Weatherspoon was arrested early Sunday on suspicion of DUI and that he also ran a red light. No other details were immediately provided.

Mississippi State coach Ben Howland released a statement through the school saying he’s “aware of the situation, and I’ve talked to Nick and his family. This is a matter we will handle internally, and at this time I have no further comment.”

The 6-foot-2 Weatherspoon is expected to have a significant impact on the court this season. He’s the brother of Mississippi State junior guard Quinndary Weatherspoon, who led the team with 16.5 points per game last season.
