Virginia Tech suspends Tyrece Radford from men’s basketball team indefinitely; charged with DUI, concealed carry


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia Tech Athletics announced on Twitter that effective immediately, it has suspended Tyrece Radford from all men’s basketball team activities indefinitely.

The athletics department did not give a specific reason why they had made this decision, only that it was because Radford was not “upholding the high standards Virginia Tech has for its student athletes.”

The university said they wouldn’t say anything else “until the matter is resolved.”

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said Radford has been charged with driving while intoxicated, first offense, and concealed weapon carry. He was released on Sunday on a $1,000 unsecured bond.

The Sheriff’s Office added that the Blacksburg Police Department was the arresting agency.

According to the Hokies’ website, the redshirt sophomore played 14 game this season, drawing 14 starts.
