Less than two weeks after taking Portland State to the NCAA Tournament and losing in the opening round the Oregonian is reporting that Morrison and guard Jeremiah Dominguez "were arrested after Kyle Meagher, 23, of Lansing, Mich., was brutally beaten hours after Meagher (pronounced MAH-her) allegedly turned Morrison and Dominguez away from a VIP room he was overseeing as part of his work with a company called Horizon Tours."

UPDATE 11:55 a.m.: The Province reports the incident occurred in Cabo San Lucas, where the two accused were vacationing for spring break.

"We are surprised and disappointed in the actions and poor judgement our student athletes have shown in this situation," said the university's director of athletics, Torre Chisholm, in a written statement.

"Prior to this, they conducted themselves in a positive manner within our program. I am disheartened to see them put themselves in such a bad position."

Morrison and his teammate were let out of jail late Tuesday after reaching some kind of deal with the victim. They could still face charges in the U.S.

Morrison led North Vancouver's Argyle Secondary to the 2004 B.C. Triple A championship.
