WSU basketball player DeAngelo Casto was arrested for misdemeanor assault after a fight at an off-campus home early Friday morning.

Pullman police arrested, cited and released Casto for 4th Degree Misdemeanor Assault after responding to a fight in a home on B Street on College Hill just after midnight.

A 21-year-old man at the house said Casto threw him against a wall and punched him after he was denied entry to a party. The man had a cut on his face and didn?t require medical treatment.

Police confirm that alcohol was involved.

WSU Sports Information Director Bill Steven says the basketball coaching staff is aware of the situation and will take appropriate action if and when it?s warranted.

Casto was the Cougars starting center last season as a sophomore, leading the team in rebounding and earning a spot on the All Pac-10 Defensive Team. He was also an All Pac-10 Honorable Mention.
