Pitt redshirt freshman running back Jason Douglas has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities, head coach Dave Wannstedt announced on Monday.
The suspension appears to stem from an incident that occurred on Sunday. According to court documents, Douglas, 19, was arrested over the weekend and faces two felony charges: aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence, and accidents involving death or personal injury. He also faces a misdemeanor charge for driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance, as well as underage drinking.
Douglas was arraigned on Sunday morning and released on bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday, September 16th.
