Dolphins lineman Shelby indefinitely suspended in wake of arrest at nightclub

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.
