Jeffers, 20, charged for being minor with alcohol

CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Oregon State center Kyle Jeffers faces
misdemeanor charges for public consumption of alcohol and resisting
arrest after his arrest Sunday night.

Jeffers, 20, was held for about an hour at Benton County Jail
before he was released. A municipal court hearing was scheduled for
June 20.

Details about the arrest were not released. The 6-foot-9
sophomore also was cited for being a minor in possession of
alcohol.

"I'm not going to make any comment on something like that,"
Oregon State coach Jay John told the Oregonian newspaper. "That's
out of my hands."

Under Oregon State's proposed conduct code for student athletes,
Jeffers would face a one-game suspension and be required to take an
alcohol awareness class and counseling.

The disciplinary code was expected to be adopted this month.

It is not immediately clear whether Jeffers will be punished
under the proposed guidelines.
