Iowa State has suspended Abdel Nader from the basketball team after his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving over the weekend.

The Iowa State Police arrested Nader around 11:40 p.m. Saturday on suspicion he was operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Nader is a 6-foot-6 forward who sat out this past season after transferring from Northern Illinois.

Nader led Northern Illinois with 13.1 points per game in 2012-13 and was expected to play next season.

Iowa State Athletic Department spokesman Matt Shoultz said Nader has been suspended indefinitely in accordance with the conduct policy for athletes.
