Iowa State wide receiver Jauan Wesley arrested for OWI

Posted: Updated:

Iowa State wide receiver Jauan Wesley has been suspended indefinitely after being charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Iowa State University police spokesman Aaron DeLashmutt says officers responded to a report of suspicious drug activity around 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

DeLashmutt says officers found Wesley and a passenger sitting in a vehicle with the windows rolled down. Officers smelled marijuana, conducted a field sobriety test on Wesley and subsequently arrested him.

Wesley was taken to the Story County jail and released later in the morning. Online records don't state whether Wesley has hired an attorney.

Coach Paul Rhoads says he's "disappointed" in Wesley, adding that his suspension falls under a policy in Iowa State's student-athlete code of conduct.

Wesley caught 10 passes as a freshman last season.
