MURRAY, Ky. (AP) -- Murray State point guard Zaveral "Zay" Jackson was suspended by the team on Monday after being accused of hitting two people with his car in a Walmart parking lot in southwestern Kentucky.
Police say the 20-year-old sophomore was charged with two counts of first-degree assault and spent Sunday night at the Calloway County jail. Police arrested Jackson following an altercation in which he allegedly hit two people with his white Monte Carlo, causing minor injuries.
Murray State coach Steve Prohm said in a statement, "There is a standard of conduct I expect from all my players, and from what I know at this point, that standard was compromised."
Jackson was a reserve who averaged 4.9 points, 2.3 assists and 2.1 rebounds as a freshman. He was projected to start this year for the Racers.
