LAS VEGAS -- UNLV receiver Terry James Furlow was suspended from the team after he was arrested and charged with trying to spend counterfeit $20 bills.

Furlow entered no plea Wednesday during an initial appearance in Las Vegas Justice Court on felony forgery, possession of forged instrument and burglary charges, a court clerk said. He was assigned a public defender and a preliminary hearing date of July 27.

The transfer from Fresno State was arrested early Sunday at a nightclub at a hotel-casino, Las Vegas police said. Furlow was suspended indefinitely for breaking team rules, UNLV spokesman Mark Wallington said.

He was being held Wednesday at the Clark County jail on $8,000 bail.
