AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State center Jordan Railey has been suspended indefinitely by coach Fred Hoiberg following his arrest for allegedly fighting in public.

Police saw Railey throw a punch at another man just after midnight on Welch Avenue, a popular restaurant and bar district for students, Ames police commander Jim Robinson said.

Railey was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct early Thursday after walking away from officers, Robinson said.

Railey, a 6-foot-11 native of Beaverton, Ore., averaged two points a game as a freshman last season.

Hoiberg said in a statement that he's still gathering information on the incident but is disappointed in Railey's behavior because it was a second offense.

Railey also was suspended by Hoiberg in January for violating team rules after a single-car accident early on New Year's Day.
