“We are aware of the situation involving Torian White, and we take these accusations very seriously,” said Jim Mora, head coach for the Bruins. “Torian has been suspended from the team indefinitely while the legal process and student discipline process run their course.”


White, an offensive tackle, was arrested around 3 a.m. on Sunday, according to a statement released by the school, when police responded to a disturbance at an apartment complex on Glenrock Avenue, which sits nearby the campus. He was then booked into county jail, but he was released on November 19. A court date has not been set as of the printing of this story.


White has attended UCLA since 2011. He has not played a game since October 3 when he injured his right leg against the Utah Utes.


“Due to the ongoing police investigation, we are unable to discuss the matter further at this time,” said Mora.
