Minnesota: Basketball Player Arrested on Sex Assault Charge
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota suspended center Reggie Lynch after he was arrested early Sunday on suspicion of "criminal sexual conduct."
The 6-foot-9 Lynch, who didn't play last season as he sat out following his transfer from Illinois State, was suspended indefinitely pending an investigation. The school did not release details of the alleged conduct and it was unclear late Sunday whether Lynch, who is from Edina, had an attorney.
The arrest is the latest in a string of bad news for a program that went 2-16 in the Big Ten last season and was hit with off-the-court problems. Three players were suspended at the end of the season after a sex video briefly appeared on social media.
One of the players, Kevin Dorsey, will transfer. Nate Mason and Dupree McBrayer have been reinstated.
