LOS ANGELES (AP) — UCLA senior point guard Jerime Anderson has been suspended for at least the team’s season opener following his arrest on suspicion of grand theft.

UCLA spokesman Ryan Finney said Wednesday that Anderson was arrested on campus Tuesday night for the alleged theft of a laptop.

In a statement, UCLA head coach Ben Howland said “This is a disappointing and unfortunate situation for Jerime.” He adds that Anderson “knows that he has made a huge mistake and that he has not represented himself, our program or UCLA in a manner that is required.”

Finney says Anderson will miss the Bruins’ game against Loyola Marymount on Nov. 11 and his status will be re-evaluated as the legal process continues. He also has been barred indefinitely from all team activities.
