Junior shooting guard Trey Zeigler will be charged with driving under the influence after an incident that took place on Sunday in Pittsburgh.

The 21-year-old was arrested by Pittsburgh police and will be charged with two misdemeanor counts. Details, including his status with the team going forward, are not certain.

The 6'5 wing is in his first season with Pittsburgh after transferring from Central Michigan in the offseason. A highly-touted recruit in high school, Zeigler chose to play for his father, Ernie Zeigler, at CMU instead of taking offers from schools such as Duke, UCLA, or Michigan. He started and averaged 16.3 points as a freshman and 15.8 points as a sophomore, but his father was fired this March, causing the NCAA to give the younger Zeigler a waiver to play for another school immediately. He chose Pitt, where his father was an assistant before taking the CMU job, and has contributed off the bench, averaging 6.2 points on 50 percent shooting.
