PITTSBURGH -- Pitt senior middle linebacker Adam Gunn has been suspended indefinitely from the football team after being charged with public drunkenness and several other offenses resulting from a dispute outside a Pittsburgh nightclub.

Gunn was charged with two misdemeanors, resisting arrest and failure to disperse, and two summary offenses, including disorderly conduct, after he and former Pitt player Austin Ransom were involved in a disturbance on the city's South Side on Sunday night.

"This incident is both surprising and disappointing. Adam has always been a strong representative of our program and his involvement in this type of situation is very out of character," Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt said in a statement released by the school.

Last month, wide receiver T.J. Porter and defensive tackle Tommie Duhart were thrown off the team for disciplinary reasons. Wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin was charged with indecent assault, harassment and disorderly conduct for an incident involving a female student on a campus bus.
