According to the Capital Times, a state trooper clocked a car that Davis was driving at 101 miles per hour. The state trooper was responding to a report that Jefferson County deputies had received of a possible intoxicated driver. After pulling the vehicle over, the state trooper found marijuana inside and arrested Davis and Freeman, who was a passenger in the car.

The newspaper reported that Freeman and Davis were released after being booked into Jefferson County Jail. Initial court appearances have not been scheduled.

Freeman, 20, and Davis, 19, have been suspended indefinitely from practices and competitions, per the terms of UW's student-athlete discipline policy, the UW announced in a press release Thursday afternoon. They have the right to appeal their suspensions. During their suspensions they may continue to use the sports medicine facility, academic support center and weight training room.

Freeman is also suspended indefinitely from the men's track and field team.

If Freeman and Davis choose not to appeal, their suspensions will continue until any charges have been addressed in the legal system and/or any applicable university or departmental disciplinary process.
