Virginia basketball player Evan Nolte has been charged with drunk in public by the Charlottesville Police Department.

According to a CPD spokesperson, the 20-year-old rising junior forward was arrested around 1 a.m. Sunday.

According to a police report, Nolte told an officer he had about 8 drinks.
Police say the officer tried to put Nolte into a taxi but Nolte got out of the car and ran. That's when he was arrested.

A spokesman for the UVa men's basketball team released a statement to the Newsplex on Tuesday, saying "Coach Bennett is aware of the incident involving junior forward Evan Nolte early Sunday and is handling the matter internally at this time."

Nolte appeared in 32 games off the bench for the ACC regular season and tournament champions last season. He averaged 2.8 points and 0.8 rebounds in 9.3 minutes per game.
