Smith, the son of head men's basketball coach Tubby Smith, was pulled over early Saturday morning after leaving a downtown Minneapolis restaurant.
"While we do not want to rush to judgment before the legal process proceeds, Coach Tubby Smith and I are taking this matter seriously," said Gophers Director of Athletics Norwood Teague. "University of Minnesota values dictate that our coaches and staff be positive role models for our student-athletes. As such, we are taking disciplinary measures while the legal system takes its course."
Smith, a first-time offender who is in his sixth season with the Gophers, is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 3, 2012.
