BOISE, Idaho - The Latest on the arrest of a Boise State freshman guard (all times local):

3:30 p.m.

Police say a Boise State University freshman guard is charged with battery after he entered a 21-and-over bar and fought with an employee who asked him to leave.

Online arrest records for the Ada County Sherriff's Office arrest show 19-year-old Jaycson Bereal was booked early Sunday and charged with two misdemeanours. In addition to battery, he faces a loitering-related charge.

Police say when an employee found out Bereal's age, he asked him to leave. Police say Bereal "began physically fighting with the employee, ultimately batting him."

Police say he was also cited for possession and/or consumption of alcohol by a minor.

His father, Jaycson Bereal Sr., tells the Idaho Press that details are unclear, but it's a misunderstanding they hope gets worked out soon.

The school's athletic department says in a statement it's aware of the incident "and will handle appropriately per department policy."

A Boise State freshman guard has been arrested and charged with two misdemeanours.

Online arrest records for the Ada County Sherriff's Office arrest show Jaycson Bereal was booked early Sunday and charged with battery and a loitering charge involving a minor loitering at premises that sell alcohol.

His father, Jaycson Bereal Sr., tells the Idaho Press that details are unclear, but it's a misunderstanding they hope gets worked out soon.

The 19-year-old Bereal is redshirting this season. He hasn't attended the past few games to focus on schoolwork.

The school's athletic department says in a statement that "Boise State is aware of last night's incident, and will handle appropriately per department policy."

The 6-foot-6 guard was a touted prospect out of Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
