Arizona sophomore forward Ira Lee was cited and released for driving under the influence early Sunday morning.

Lee, 20, is facing misdemeanor charges of failing to yield at an intersection, DUI as a minor and super extreme DUI involving a blood alcohol content of 0.20 or higher, according to Pima County justice court records. He was pulled over at 1:22 a.m. Sunday morning and tested for a blood-alcohol level of .215, police said.

Lee's arraignment is scheduled for Sept. 10, court records show. He is also in default for a May traffic stop in which he was cited for speeding more than 29 miles above the posted speed limit, court records show.

UA said in a statement that the incident has been referred to the dean of students for review under the university's student code of conduct, and that its athletic department is reviewing the incident for team consequences.

Under ninth-year coach Sean Miller, the Wildcats have not had an active player become charged with DUI, though guard Josiah Turner was arrested by UA police on suspicion of extreme DUI in April 2012 just weeks after the school announced he was leaving the team.

Lee, who will turn 21 on March 19, has been expected to be a major contributor for the Wildcats in the upcoming season after averaging just 10.2 minutes as a freshman last season. With 7-footers Deandre Ayton and Dusan Ristic having departed, the Wildcats have just four players for their two post positions.

Lee averagedA 2.4 points and 2.3 rebounds last season but missed the final four games of the regular season and the Wildcats' three-game Pac-12 Tournament appearance because of a concussion suffered in practice on Feb. 20. He played only a minute in UA's season-ending loss to Buffalo in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
