UConn guard Jalen Adams has been charged with a misdemeanor after police say he left the scene of a crash involving a scooter he was operating.

Police say the 21-year-old junior was among four men who were racing their scooters on campus Wednesday night when the one Adams was operating hit the back of another. Police say Adams left the broken scooter at the scene and hopped on the back of another.

No injuries were reported. Police say they located Adams, the other men and the three other scooters at a local business.

Adams was charged with evading responsibility and released after posting a $500 bond.

Adams averaged more than 14 points a game for the Huskies last season. The team opens the season Friday against Colgate.

In a statement, UConn athletics officials said "Junior guard Jalen Adams has been suspended from practice today because of conduct detrimental to the team. Going forward, his status will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis by head coach Kevin Ollie."Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
