Following his arrest on multiple misdemeanor charges, Iowa State basketball star Bryce Dejean-Jones has been suspended for Friday night's rivalry game against Iowa.

Coach Fred Hoiberg announced DeJean-Jones' punishment late this afternoon (Thursday, December 11, 2014), saying his suspension is for one game only -- Friday's road test between the No. 13/14-ranked Cyclones (6-1) and the Hawkeyes (8-2) in Iowa City.

Iowa State's second-leading scorer was taken into custody early this morning after police were called to his apartment on complaints of loud noise. Ames police initially charged the senior guard from Los Angeles with three misdemeanors, but one of those charges was later dropped.

At his initial court appearance today, a Story County judge dismissed a charge of gathering where marijuana is used. The judge ruled that Ames police did not have probable cause to arrest Dejean-Jones on the drug-related charge -- the most-serious of the three misdemeanors.

Two other simple misdemeanor charges against Dejean-Jones are still pending.
