SEATTLE – University of Washington linebacker Azeem Victor was suspended from the team Wednesday after being arrested for DUI early Sunday morning, the school announced in a press release.

“We take these matters very seriously, and have suspended Azeem from our team indefinitely as we continue to gather details about this incident,” head coach Chris Petersen said in a statement.
