Iowa basketball player Peter Jok has been suspended indefinitely from all Iowa-basketball-related activities, according to a statement from head coach Fran McCaffery.

After pleading guilty to an OWI charge in April, Jok was arrested late Monday night and charged with driving while his license was revoked.

“In light of last night’s moped incident, I’ve decided to suspend Peter Jok indefinitely from all University of Iowa basketball related activities,” McCaffery said in a statement. “We support Peter, but we’re not happy with his recent pattern of behavior.

“In the interim, Peter will continue to attend summer-school classes, participate in community-service projects, and take time to work on things internally, as outlined in accordance with the student-athlete Code of Conduct. We will monitor his progress and go from there.”

As a freshman, Jok averaged 9.4 minutes per game and 4.4 points per game. Jok is a resident of West Des Moines.
