New Mexico kicks Carlton Bragg Jr. off team after DWI arrest

Jan 13, 2020

New Mexico forward Carlton Bragg Jr. has been dismissed from the Lobos basketball team following his arrest on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and marijuana possession. In a statement Sunday, coach Paul Weir said Bragg needs to focus on his personal well-being. The arrest comes nine days after the 24-year-old Bragg was reinstated to the team. He had received a three-game suspension while university officials investigated sexual misconduct allegations against him by another student. Bragg was arrested at a sobriety checkpoint in Albuquerque Sunday, hours after the 15-and-3 Lobos beat Air Force.
