Ames, IA, United States (4E Sports) – For the second time in two months, another Iowa State player has been charged for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Sophomore shooting guard Matt Thomas was arrested Saturday for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

According to police, the 19-year-old Thomas was arrested and jailed by Ames, Iowa, police early Saturday before he was bailed out by his brother.

Thomas averaged 5.5 points for the Cyclones last season. He is expected to be suspended as a result of the incident, the source said.

Earlier, a source said coach Fred Hoiberg met with his team Saturday morning to discuss the incident prior to participating in a charitable walk to raise money for heart disease research in Des Moines. Thomas did not attend.

Abdel Nader, a transfer from Northern Illinois, was arrested for driving while intoxicated in April. He pleaded not guilty to the charge in May and is set to appear in court later this month.

Nader, who sat out during the 2013-14 season, was suspended indefinitely after the arrest.
