The Marietta Times reported Tuesday that Marietta College senior point guard Tyler Hammond was arrested Saturday for operating a vehicle under the influence.

Hammond, Marietta's only senior, was averaging 28.3 minutes per game for the Pioneers this season averaging over 10 points per game with 44 assists on the year. Last season, he earned honorable mention All-OAC honors.

Earlier this season, Hammond was suspended for four games earlier in the season for violating school policies.

A voicemail was left for Marietta Assistant Athletics Director for Sports Information and Compliance, Jeff Schaly, looking for a statement from the college.

The Pioneers (9-2) are the No. 19 team in the country in Division III basketball. Marietta faces off with Ohio Northern in Ada on Wednesday night at 7 p.m.
