AMES, Iowa – Iowa State University has suspended Abdel Nader from the basketball team after his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving over the weekend.

The Iowa State Police arrested Nader around 11:40 p.m. Saturday on suspicion that he was operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Nader is a 6-foot-6 small forward who sat out this past season after transferring to Iowa State from Northern Illinois.

Nader led Northern Illinois with 13.1 points a game in 2012-13, and he was expected to play next season.

Iowa State athletic department spokesman Matt Shoultz said Nader has been suspended indefinitely in accordance with the conduct policy for athletes.
