WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) -- Melvin Tabb has been kicked off the Wake Forest basketball team, and the school says he is facing three criminal charges.

School spokesman Kevin Cox said Wednesday the university's police department obtained a warrant this week for Tabb's arrest on felony charges of breaking and entering and possession of stolen goods and a misdemeanor charge of obtaining property by false pretense.

Cox says the charges are related to an on-campus incident in June. He would not release additional details about the matter.

Team spokesman Scott Wortman says Tabb was released from the basketball program before the warrant was obtained. The Raleigh native was suspended indefinitely from the team last month for violating unspecified department rules.
