(AP) AMHERST, Mass. - Massachusetts coach Derek Kellogg has indefinitely suspended sophomore center Cady Lalanne following his weekend arrest for allegedly interfering with a police officer at a campus dance.

Police say Lalanne was arrested at about 11:50 p.m. Saturday on charges of disorderly conduct, assault and battery on a police officer and resisting arrest.

Police say Lalanne’s friend hadn’t paid admission and that the player interfered with police trying to remove the friend.

Kellogg said in a statement Monday that he will monitor the situation and make a decision about the length of the suspension within the next few days.

Lalanne was averaging 4.8 points and 5.2 rebounds for UMass (3-3).
