Vandy suspends RB
for nightclub incident

NASHVILLE (AP) — Vanderbilt has suspended running back Jermaine Doster for the season for violating team rules after the 20-year-old was arrested last month following an incident at a Florida night club.
Coach Bobby Johnson announced the suspension over the weekend while talking to reporters after the first practice of fall camp.
Johnson says Doster will practice with the team, but the redshirt freshman will not play in any games.
According to police, Doster was asked to leave The Honey-Pot Bar and arrested when he failed to cooperate. He was charged with misdemeanors including disorderly conduct, criminal mischief and obstructing an officer without violence.
Doster is the younger brother of the late Kwane Doster, a Commodores running back shot to death in Tampa in 2004.
