J.T. Terrell is leaving the Wake Forest basketball team and withdrawing from school after an impaired-driving arrest, the school announced today.
Terrell, who was second on the team in scoring as a freshman, averaging 11.1 points per game, was arrested at 3 a.m. Saturday and charged with driving while impaired, his lawyer said in Wake Forest's official statement.
“Due to circumstances surrounding his arrest, along with other recent indicators, it is obvious to J.T. and his family that J.T. suffers from a serious medical condition which requires immediate attention,” Terrell's attorney, Mike Grace, said in the statement.
