BGSU basketball player indefinitely suspended after reported assault

A senior Bowling Green State University basketball player has been suspended indefinitely from the team
after being cited for disorderly conduct and criminal trespass in late July.
Michael Laster, a guard for the Falcons, remains suspended from the team after the July 29 incident,
according to a BGSU spokesperson.
Laster, 21, has not practiced or been associated with the program in any way since the incident, but the
program continues to gather as much information as it can about the citation. Once the information is
collected the program will further assess Laster’s standing with the team, the Sentinel-Tribune is told.

Laster came off the bench in 33 games for BG a year ago, averaging 6.8 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7
assists per contest.
At 11:34 p.m. on July 29, the Bowling Green Police Division was called to Liquid Bar, 238 N. Main St.,
where the bar manager reported a bar employee had been assaulted by Laster inside the bar.
