Indianapolis Star

Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis men's basketball coach Jason Gardner was arrested on suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated in Hamilton County.

According to officials at Hamilton County Jail, Gardner was booked into the jail over the weekend and released early Tuesday on his own recognizance. He was taken into custody by the Fishers Police Department.

Gardner resigned from his post at IUPUI Tuesday, Assistant Athletic Director Ed Holdaway confirmed. Holdaway said it was a mutual decision between Gardner and the university, adding "we certainly wish him the best." 

The OWI investigation began around 4:30 a.m. Sunday when police were called to the intersection of Cumberland Road and Bruddy Drive to check on the welfare of a man driving a 2016 Nissan.

Officers were there on a report that the vehicle had stopped in the intersection for unknown reasons. 

Officers from the Fishers Police Department arrived at the scene and found Gardner asleep behind the wheel, police said. After multiple unsuccessful attempts to wake Gardner, officers entered the Nissan and took it out of gear.
