UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Sources confirmed Wednesday to 6 News that an All-American wrestler on the Penn State University squad has been suspended.

Sources said wrestler Ed Ruth was temporarily suspended for breaking team rules.

Sources also confirmed to 6 News that Ruth had a “run-in” with State College police Tuesday night. There was no indication that the alleged police incident lead to the resulting suspension.

Following today’s press conference, head coach Cael Sanderson told Fightonstate.com that Ruth would not be wrestling this weekend.

"Real quick, one thing, we, uh, Ed Ruth broke team rules yesterday. He will not be wrestling this weekend. [I’m] not going to comment on that really any more than that, but just so you know."

Ruth is a two-time national champion with the Nittany Lions.
