Morgantown, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia football coach Bill Stewart has suspended wide receiver Jock Sanders following his arrest on a drunken driving charge in Morgantown.

Stewart said Tuesday that Sanders will be suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of the case.

The coach declined further comment.

A criminal complaint in Monongalia County Magistrate Court says Sanders initially was pulled over for speeding and crossing over the center line Saturday.

The report shows Sanders had a blood-alcohol level of 0.125 percent, above the legal limit of 0.08.

Last year Sanders and three other players pleaded no contest to a battery charge, agreed to community service and paid $250 fines for a fight outside a Morgantown Nightclub.

Sanders was the team's leading receiver last season with 53 catches for 462 yards.

    It will be interesting to see how our coach with high morals and standards will handle the SECOND criminal offense of one of his stars?
