NORMAL - Illinois State sophomore guard Geoffrey Allen has been jailed on two charges related to alleged marijuana sales.
McLean County Jail staff said Allen, 20, was arrested Wednesday night on a warrant and charged with criminal drug conspiracy and manufacture or delivery of 30 to 500 grams of pot.
Allen was released from custody shortly after 9 p.m. after posting $3,025 bond.
Allen was suspended indefinitely from the basketball team Wednesday afternoon, before the arrest.
“I’m very disappointed in Geoffrey,” Coach Dan Muller said in making the announcement. “He has violated our team standards and has been suspended indefinitely.”
Allen has played in six games this season, averaging 3.5 points and 2.7 rebounds per contest.
The Los Angeles native transferred to ISU from Eastern Washington during the summer. He was granted an NCAA waiver, which allowed him to play this season, despite transferring from another NCAA Division I program.
