    AMES, Iowa ó An Iowa State menís basketball player was arrested early Saturday for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

    The Ames Tribune reports ISU coach Fred Hoiberg is aware of Thomasí situation, and he is suspended indefinitely, following student conduct policy.

    Thomas is the second Iowa State basketball player to be charged for the violation in two months. Junior Abdel Nader was arrested in May on suspicion that he was operating a vehicle while intoxicated. He pleaded not guilty.
