Pittsburgh Panthers backup center Derrick Randall was suspended indefinitely Tuesday after he was arrested on suspicion of DWI, the school announced.

Randall was also charged with use of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of a controlled dangerous substance, according to the Bergen Record. He was arrested on the Rutgers University campus at 2:45 a.m. Tuesday when he was pulled over for driving without headlights on.

"The incident involving Derrick Randall this morning is not only surprising but incredibly disappointing," Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said in a statement Tuesday. "Although I believe it was out of character for Derrick, he has been indefinitely suspended."

Randall transferred from Rutgers in 2013 after video surfaced of then-coach Mike Rice shoving and berating his players during practice. Randall filed a lawsuit against Rutgers in December regarding the way that he was treated during his time at the school.

Randall has one year of eligibility remaining. He averaged 2.1 points, 2.4 rebounds and 8.6 minutes in 36 games last season.
