Pittsburgh Panthers junior guard Trey Zeigler was suspended indefinitely on Monday after being charged with driving under the influence.

Zeigler, who transferred to Pittsburgh this season after playing his first two seasons at Central Michigan, will be charged by mail summons with two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The incident occurred Sunday, although further details are still unknown.

In a statement released by the university, Pittsburgh head coach Jamie Dixon said the incident was surprising and incredibly disappointing. He said he thought it was out of character for Zeigler, but that the junior guard would be suspended immediately and "until further notice"

Zeigler apologized to his family, teammates, coaches, the university and the Pittsburgh community. He said the incident is not "indicative of the kind of person I am." His preliminary hearing is scheduled for February 5. Zeigler has played 16.8 minutes per game this season and is averaging 6.2 points per game.
