STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Prosecutors in Payne County on Tuesday filed a misdemeanor drunken driving charge against Oklahoma State basketball player Marcus Dove.

Dove was arrested just after 2 Sunday morning by campus police after his car drifted across the center line. He spent about seven hours in jail before being released on a personal recognizance bond.

OSU head coach Sean Sutton announced Monday the indefinite suspension of Dove from the basketball team.

Dove is to return to court August 20th.

He's one of two returning seniors on the Cowboys' basketball team. He averaged 4.7 points and 4.5 rebounds per game last year and was the Big 12 Conference co-defensive player of the year.
