SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah receiver Marquis Wilson was charged with drunken driving and suspended indefinitely from the team.

Wilson was pulled over on March 10 downtown and cited for making an illegal turn.

Police gave Wilson sobriety test and his blood alcohol content was .11 percent, .03 above the legal limit, according to police reports.

Wilson, 20, was charged Friday with misdemeanor drunken driving, possession of alcohol by a minor.

Utah coach Kyle Whittingham suspended Wilson indefinitely Monday, saying it was for a rules violation and that he hoped "it is something we can work through and get him back."

Wilson had 25 catches for 398 yards and three touchdowns last season.
