College Park, MD (Sports Network) - Maryland running back Wes Brown, who was second on the team in rushing yards in 2012, has been suspended for the entire upcoming season.

Earlier this week, the Prince George's County State's Attorney's Office dismissed three criminal charges against Brown, according to the Baltimore Sun. The charges are from a July 3 encounter with police.

According to the newspaper, Brown was charged with second-degree assault, wiretapping and stealing a cell phone. The Sun says Baltimore police detectives came to College Park and wanted to question Brown about a non-fatal shooting in Baltimore, but the running back resisted coming to police headquarters. He was reportedly accused of shoving a police detective.

"We support the University of Maryland's decision," Terrapins coach Randy Edsall said. "I have spoken with Wes. He accepts the sanctions and understands what is expected of him moving forward."

Brown rushed for 382 yards and a pair of touchdowns last season.
