Langston Morris-Walker, 19, a sophomore guard on the Oregon State men's basketball team, was arrested early Friday morning for driving under the influence of intoxicants.

Morris-Walker was pulled over around 1:15 a.m. Friday for making an unlawful or unsignaled turn on Monroe Avenue near Fourth Street.

He was then arrested for a DUII after it was determined that he was unable to safely operate a vehicle, according to a report from the Benton County Sheriffs Office. He registered a blood-alcohol content of 0.04 percent.

Morris-Walker was suspended for Saturday's regular-season finale against Arizona State for a violation of university rules, according to OSU men's basketball coach Craig Robinson.

Morris-Walker started 16 of 18 conference games and is averaging 5.2 points and 24.3 minutes per game in Pac-12 play.

Robinson did not know if the guard would be able to play in the Pac-12 Tournament, which begins this week with the Beavers taking on the University of Oregon in the first round in Las Vegas.

The relation between the suspension and the DUII has not been confirmed.

This is Morris-Walker's second suspension in the past two years. He was suspended last season for allegedly stealing a T-shirt from the OSU Beaver Store.

Craig Robinson is holding a media teleconference at 12 p.m. Monday, check back for updates as this story develops.
