Reportedly the charge on Mosquera-Perea was an OWI while causing endangerment. As of 9 a.m. Friday, Mosquera-Perea was still in custody.

At 10 a.m., IU coach Tom Crean had his scheduled teleconference with the media to talk about Purdue and he addressed the situation at that time.

"We're aware of it, we're in the process of getting more information,'' Crean said. "It's a disappointing shock to all of us but at the same time we'll wait to learn more about it.
