Iowa sophomore guard Peter Jok has been suspended indefinitely from all basketball-related activities, Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery said in a statement issued by the UI on Tuesday. Jok’s suspension comes after being arrested for the second time in three months Monday on charges of driving his moped with a revoked license.

Jok’s license was suspended following his first arrest last April on OWI charges. McCaffery’s statement comes after Iowa athletics director Gary Barta issued a statement Tuesday morning saying the incident would be further investigated.

“We support Peter, but we’re not happy with his recent pattern of behavior,” McCaffery said in the statement. “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.”
