AMES, Iowa –Iowa State University men's basketball coach Fred Hoiberg announced that Bryce Dejean-Jones has been suspended and will not play in Friday's game against the University of Iowa.
Police were called to Bryce Dejean-Jones’ apartment complex at about 3 a.m. Thursday on a noise complaint. When they arrived they smelled marijuana, obtained a warrant and entered the apartment. Inside they found Bryce Dejean-Jones and three or four other people along with a small amount of marijuana.
Police say this is at least the 5th time they've been to Dejean-Jones' apartment for noise-related violations.
They also said they had met with the coaching staff about Dejean-Jones' repeated incidents.
Channel 13’s Michael Admire spoke with one Iowa State student that lives on the same floor as Dejean-Jones, and he shared with us pictures of trash outside Dejean-Jones' apartment with broken doors. The student told us this is a common site.
These pictures were taken on September 27th.
Dejean-Jones was arrested and charged with hosting a drug house, a serious misdemeanor, as well as nuisance party and noise violations. The drug house charge was dismissed.
Coach Hoiberg says Dejean-Jones did practice with the team Thursday and will travel with the team to Iowa City Friday for the Cy-Hawk matchup, but will not play.
