Oklahoma basketball player Roy Willis has been suspended from the team following his weekend arrest on a complaint of suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

A Norman police officer stopped Willis on campus at about 3 a.m.
Saturday, Lt. Blake Green said Sunday. Willis was arrested without
incident and taken to the Cleveland County Detention Center
downtown.

The 19-year-old Atlanta resident was later released on bond.

After No. 2 Oklahoma beat Colorado 77-72 Saturday afternoon,
coach Jeff Capel said Willis was "suspended indefinitely," but
didn't elaborate.

Oklahoma athletic department spokesman Mike Houck said Sunday
that Capel would have no additional comment.

Willis, a 6-foot-6 freshman guard, has played in 14 games this
season for the Sooners, averaging 3.8 points and 1.6 rebounds per
game.

In September, Willis and Oklahoma football player Frank
Alexander were stabbed during an altercation at a Norman nightclub
and required hospitalization.

Capel said then that Willis sustained "multiple wounds, one of
which resulted in a partially collapsed lung."

According to police report, Willis and Alexander were among
those caught in a melee involving guns, knives and tire irons at a
private function at the club.
