Washington State Cougars guard Brett Kingma was arrested for being a minor exhibiting the effects of alcohol and for possession of marijuana under 40g, Coug Center reported on Monday.

Kingma is sitting out this year with the Cougars after transferring from Oregon last year. He was arrested shortly before 2 a.m. He averaged 3.1 points over 9.8 minutes for the Ducks last year.

The team hasn't released an official statement on Kingma's arrest, nor what kind of discipline he may receive.

The Cougars have experience dealing with players who have receive marijuana citations recently. In March of 2011, the Cougars revoked a suspension on forward DeAngelo Casto in time for him to play in the NIT quarterfinal game. Casto was also cited for possession of less than 40g.

Klay Thompson, who now plays for the Golden State Warriors, was also cited for marijuana possession in 2011, and was suspended for his final regular season game.
