Add another one to the files of former Arizona guard Josiah Turner, who was arrested on suspicion of DUI within the past week (the full police report is not yet available).

-- Turner started the first game of the season but was taken out of the starting lineup on Nov. 9 against Duquesne when he showed up late for a pregame shootaround.

-- He was suspended one game for unspecified reasons for the Wildcats' Dec. 7 game at Florida. 

-- He remained out of the starting lineup for the rest of the nonconference season, though he did regain the job after UA's Pac-12 opener and started 16 of 18 conference games.

-- He was suspended indefinitely for unspecified reasons on March 7, just before the Pac-12 Tournament. Sean Miller said after the tournament he would remain suspended for the NIT and at that point, it became a strong possibility that Turner's UA career was over.

-- UA announced on April 11 that he would transfer. No destination has been named yet though Zagsblog has reported St. John's is a possibility.

--
