BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Police have cited Indiana freshman Emmitt Holt for underage drinking after he hit teammate Devin Davis with his SUV, which left Davis hospitalized with a serious head injury.

Bloomington Police Sgt. Jeffery Canada says Holt and his passengers told police that they had dropped off Davis, a sophomore, off at the Memorial Stadium parking lot about 12:45 a.m. Saturday.

Canada says Holt was driving away when Davis suddenly entered the roadway for unknown reasons and collided with the vehicle. Police found Davis unconscious with a head injury.

Senior assistant athletic director J.D. Campbell says Davis is in serious condition.

Holt was issued citations for misdemeanor illegal consumption of alcohol and cited for being under age 21 and operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content above 0.02.
