NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Vanderbilt has suspended sophomore running back Jermaine Doster indefinitely following his arrest by Nashville police in which they used an electonic stun device to stop him during an early morning fight.

Coach Bobby Johnson confirmed the suspension Tuesday.

Doster was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct after police noticed a fight in downtown Nashville. Doster followed some people across the street. The arrest affidavit says Doster kept fighting and officers had to use a stun gun to stop him.

The Tampa, Fla., native was suspended for the 2008 season after being charged with three misdemeanors for refusing to leave a Florida night club. He is the younger brother of the late Kwane Doster, a Vanderbilt running back shot to death in Tampa in 2004.
