UPDATE: UConn basketball coach Kevin Ollie says Jalen Adams has been suspended and will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis following his arrest.
UConn basketball star Jalen Adams had a brief run-in with the law that has resulted in his arrest.
According to multiple reports, Adams was racing his scooter on campus with three others when he crashed. Adams then jumped onto another scooter before fleeing the scene.
Adams was arrested for a misdemeanor charge of evading responsibility.
“Officers soon located four males and three scooters that matched [witnesses’] description at a nearby business,” a report from from the Hartford Courant says. “Adams admitted to engaging in a race with three other drivers before crashing the scooter and leaving the scene.”
Adams was released on $500 bond.
There is no word on whether Adams will be suspended as a result of the arrest for the Huskies’ season opener against Colgate on Friday night.
Last season, Adams led the Huskies in scoring and assists with 14.4 points and 6.1 assists per game.
