ORLANDO, Fla. -- Central Florida running back Ricky Kay was suspended from the team following an arrest over the weekend.

According to an affidavit, the 19-year-old was charged with preventing or hindering firefighter equipment and damage of property. Kay was arrested Saturday morning, posted $1,100 bond and was released.

Authorities said Kay had been at a nightclub and when returning, he hit a sign and a pressure gauge attached to the fire sprinkler system. The total damage was estimated at $5,200.

UCF officials say in a statement that Kay will remain suspended until resolution of the charges.

Kay came to UCF in 2007 as a walk-on. He appeared in 13 games last season.
