Longhorn suspended

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Authorities say suspended Texas forward
Alexis Wangmene had been arrested on a drunken driving charge.

Texas coach Rick Barnes announced Tuesday night that Wangmene
was suspended indefinitely for an unspecified violation of team
rules. Wangmene did not play in No. 5 Texas' 76-53 win over Iowa
State, but was on the bench in street clothes.

Travis County sheriff's spokesman Roger Wade said Wangmene was
arrested early Sunday morning by Department of Public Safety
officers in Austin and charged with driving while intoxicated.

Wangmene was released from jail on a personal recognizance bond.
Texas spokesman Scott McConnell says Wangmeme remains suspended
and Barnes had no immediate comment.

Wangmeme has played in 27 games this season, averaging 2.4
points.
