Abdel Nader

ISU men's basketball player Abdel Nader has been suspended indefinitely after he was arrested April 12 and charged with operating while intoxicated according to police records.

Nader was stopped at 11:41 p.m. Saturday by the ISU Police Department at the intersection of Hyland Avenue and West Street, police records show. ISU Police said Nader was pulled over for running a red light at Lincoln Way and the intersection of Hyland Avenue and he failed a field sobriety test.

An ISU spokesperson said April 13 that ISU coach Fred Hoiberg is aware of the situation and Nader has been suspended indefinitely for violating the Iowa State student-athlete code of conduct policy.

Nader, a 6-foot-6 forward, transferred to Iowa State this season from Northern Illinois and sat out per NCAA transfer rules. He would be eligible to play for the Cyclones next season.
