Indiana State freshman was booked on Saturday night

Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 10:29 pm

Former Northrop Bruins basketball standout Brenton Scott was arrested Saturday night in Terre Haute for a variety of charges, including operating while intoxicated, possession of marijuana/hash, possession of drug paraphernalia and false reporting/informing.

Charges are pending at this time as the case is reviewed by the Vigo County prosecutor.

Scott is a freshman point guard at Indiana State but is taking a redshirt year for the Sycamores, who are 21-9 this season and second in the Missouri Valley Conference behind undefeated Wichita State.

According to the police report, the car in which Scott was driving smelled of marijuana when the deputy pulled the vehicle over. Two additional Indiana State players were in the car in Alex Etherington and Devonte Brown.

Scott then attempted to pass himself off as his brother Bryson, which led to the charge of false reporting/informing.

Indiana State coach Greg Lansing told The Terre Haute Tribune-Star on Monday that Scott is suspended indefinitely.

Scott is second on the all-time career scoring list at Northrop with 1,537 points and holds the school record for most three-pointers made (219).

He was named All-SAC three straight years and was a member of The News-Sentinel All-Area Team last season.
