Iowa Athletics Director Gary Barta said in a Sunday release that basketball guard Anthony Tucker had been suspended indefinitely. The sophomore from Minnesota was arrested for public intoxication for the second time in a little over a year.

Anthony Tucker was arrested for public intoxication last night. I have communicated with Men’s Basketball Coach Todd Lickliter. At this point, I do not have all the details of the incident. I can tell you, we are able to confirm that Anthony Tucker was arrested. Based on that confirmation, Anthony will be suspended for an indefinite period of time.

“First and foremost, I wanted to make sure Anthony is okay from a physical safety standpoint, and he is. Certainly, I am disappointed because this is not the first legal incident involving alcohol.

“I will have no further statement until we learn more about the incident.”
