Pitt guard Trey Zeigler has been indefinitely suspended by the team.

Pittsburgh Panthers' guard Trey Zeigler has been suspended indefinitely by the team due to his driving under the influence citation on Sunday morning, according to an announcement by head coach Jamie Dixon on Monday.

Zeigler will be charged with two misdemeanors by mail summons. Details of the arrest have not yet been made available.

Dixon expressed disappointment in Zeigler via a statement released on Monday, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

"The incident involving Trey Zeigler is not only surprising, but incredibly disappointing. Although I believe it was out of character for Trey, he has been immediately suspended until further notice. Trey has expressed his deep regret to me and understands and respects the importance of accountability for one's actions."

Zeigler also released a statement where he offered his apologies to the university, his family, his teammates and the community of Pittsburgh. He also expressed that his actions did not properly display his character, nor the type of person he wants to become.

The 21-year-old junior has acted in a reserve role with Pitt and is averaging 6.2 points in 16.8 minutes this season. Zeigler transferred to Pitt last spring from Central Michigan where he played for his father, Ernie Zeigler.
