COLUMBIA, MO -- Missouri forward Leo Lyons has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest on traffic charges and for failing to pay a traffic fine from 2006.
Missouri spokesman Dave Reiter says Lyons was arrested Sunday
night in Columbia for driving without the vehicle's lights on and
failing to display proof of insurance. Police then learned there
was a warrant for Lyons for an unpaid fine for making an illegal
turn in 2006.
Coach Mike Anderson has not determined how long Lyons will be
suspended. The Tigers are 13-3 but 0-1 in Big 12 play after a loss
at Nebraska on Saturday, and host Colorado on Wednesday.
Lyons is second on the team with 14.6 points per game, and is
second in rebounding, averaging 6.2 per game.
