Missouri basketball player arrested for alleged DWI, suspended
COLUMBIA - Missouri basketball forward Mitchell Smith was arrested early Sunday morning by the Boone County Sheriff's Department and charged with a DWI.
Smith was released after paying a $500 bond.
Per an MU team official, Smith has been suspended from team activities for a minimum of one week.
The Missouri student-athlete handbook states that athletes arrested for DWI are suspended from team activities for a minimum of one week and a first offense is handled within the athletic department.
Smith joins Noah Robinson and Jordan Barnett as Tiger athletes arrested for a DWI this year.
He averaged 2.4 points and 1.7 rebounds in 11 games as a freshman in 2016-17 before tearing his ACL against LSU. He missed all of last season while recovering.
The Tigers tip off the new season Nov. 6 against Central Arkansas.
