BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A Boise State freshman guard has been arrested and charged with two misdemeanors.

Online arrest records for the Ada County Sherriff's Office arrest show Jaycson Bereal was booked early Sunday and charged with battery and a loitering charge involving a minor loitering at premises that sell alcohol.

His father, Jaycson Bereal Sr., tells the Idaho Press that details are unclear, but it's a misunderstanding they hope gets worked out soon.

The 19-year-old Bereal is redshirting this season. He hasn't attended the past few games to focus on schoolwork.

The school's athletic department says in a statement that "Boise State is aware of last night's incident, and will handle appropriately per department policy."

The 6-foot-6 guard was a touted prospect out of Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
