2 Florida hoops players suspended after arrest

Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan has suspended forwards Erik Murphy and Cody Larson after they were arrested and charged with breaking into a car.

Donovan says he is "very disappointed with the news" and the players have been suspended from "basketball-related activities." Donovan says he will not comment further until he gets more information and meets with the players.

Police say witnesses spotted Murphy and Larson breaking into a car outside a restaurant/bar. The car owner reported nothing missing.

Murphy and Larson were charged with one felony count of third-degree burglary. They were booked at the St. Johns County Jail about 4 a.m. Sunday and later released on $5,000 bond.
