LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky freshman defensive lineman Lloyd Tubman is scheduled for arraignment Wednesday after being arrested and charged with first-degree rape.

Tubman is being held on $10,000 bond in the Lexington-Fayette County jail and is set to appear in district court. The Louisville native was arrested Tuesday, five days after an incident in a campus dormitory.

Tubman, who hasn't played this season, has been suspended indefinitely by coach Mark Stoops. The university said in a release that the 6-foot-5, 225-pound Tubman is also subject to discipline under its code of conduct.

According to the arrest warrant obtained by The Associated Press, the woman called campus police Thursday following the incident involving Tubman, who she described as her ex-boyfriend. The AP does not identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault.
