Western Kentucky basketball sophomore guard Josh Anderson was arrested Thursday morning for second-degree disorderly conduct, according to the Warren County Regional Jail.

Anderson, 20, was booked at 12:52 a.m.

"We are aware of the situation and handling it internally at this time," WKU said in a statement.

According to police reports obtained by WBKO, Bowling Green Police responded to a large crowd in the parking lot of the Hilltop Club Apartments at 12:24 a.m. When police asked the crowd to leave, Anderson refused and "was standing next to a vehicle dancing and singing which caused people to stand there and laugh at him."

BGPD says after asking him to stop dancing and to leave a second time, Anderson refused again and "said multiple curse words and started yelling at me instead of leaving."

Anderson scored 22 points in Tuesday's exhibtion opener agaisnt Campbellsville.

WKU is scheduled to host Kentucky Wesleyan in its final exhibition 2 p.m. Saturday.
