Tyrece Radford charged with DUI, concealed carry; suspended indefinitely from Hokies basketball team

He was also charged with concealed carry


Tyrece Radford, who was suspended indefinitely from the Virginia Tech men’s basketball team, is also facing several charges, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Radford has been charged with driving while intoxicated (first offense) and concealed weapon carry, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities said Radford was released on Sunday on a $1,000 unsecured bond.


The Hokies have suspended Tyrece Radford from all men’s basketball team activities indefinitely, according to a team statement posted to Twitter on Monday morning.

The redshirt sophomore was a guard for the Hokies and was also the ACC player of the week earlier this month.

According to the statement, Radford was suspended for “not upholding the high standards Virginia Tech has for its students and athletes.”

The team did not specify the exact reason for his suspension, and said no more information will be released until the situation is resolved.
