Senior point guard Jerime Anderson has been arrested by University Police and then quickly suspended by UCLA Coach Ben Howland from the team. Find out why and some inside information on the incident...

UCLA's Official Release:

UCLA men's basketball player Jerime Anderson has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities and at least the 2011-12 season-opener against Loyola Marymount (Nov. 11) following his arrest Tuesday (July 26) evening.

Anderson, a senior point guard, was arrested on campus by University Police and was charged with suspicion of grand theft in connection with the theft of a laptop.

"This is a disappointing and unfortunate situation for Jerime," said head coach Ben Howland. "We have a high standard and code of conduct that our student-athletes are expected to follow. He knows that he has made a huge mistake and that he has not represented himself, our program or UCLA in a manner that is required."

Anderson's status with the team will be re-evaluated as the legal process continues.

According to BRO sources, Anderson boasted about the theft on Facebook and then was arrested with the laptop in his hand.
