UCLA suspends Anderson indefinitely

Jul 27, 2011 - 9:52 PM Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - UCLA guard Jerime Anderson has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest on Tuesday night.

"This is a disappointing and unfortunate situation for Jerime," said Bruins head coach Ben Howland. "We have a high standard and code of conduct that our student-athletes are expected to follow. He knows that he has made a huge mistake and that he has not represented himself, our program and UCLA in a manner that is required."

Anderson, a senior and native of Anaheim, was arrested on campus by university police and charged with suspicion of grand theft involving a personal computer. He will be prohibited from attending all team activities going forward, including the school's season-opener against Loyola Marymount on November 11.

The 21-year-old posted 5.1 points, 2.6 assists and 1.7 rebounds in 34 games as a junior last season.
