Oregon LB Kiko Alonso suspended
EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon has indefinitely suspended linebacker Kiko Alonso following his arrest on burglary and trespassing charges.
Oregon football coach Chip Kelly announced the suspension Monday in a statement from the university that said there would no further comment while the case was pending.
The Register-Guard reported the 20-year-old junior from Los Gatos, Calif., was arrested early Sunday after a Eugene woman called 911 to report a strange man pounding on her front door demanding to be let inside.
Alonso was released later Sunday from the Lane County Jail after he was charged with burglary, trespassing and criminal mischief.
He was suspended for the entire 2010 season after a driving while intoxicated citation last winter.
