Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Derrick Shelby has been suspended indefinitely in the wake of his arrest on misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and trespassing at a nightclub.

Shelby was suspended hours before Monday's practice for conduct detrimental to the team. The Dolphins will gather more information on the arrest before making a final determination on disciplinary action, coach Joe Philbin said in a statement.

Shelby was arrested around 2 a.m. Saturday at a Fort Lauderdale club after refusing to leave, police said. He was released from jail on a $100 bond. Shelby's attorney said his client is innocent.

A third-year veteran, Shelby has played in all four games as a reserve this season.
