DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Tigers have suspended minor league pitcher Warwick Saupold for five games after he was reportedly arrested last weekend in Toledo, Ohio.

Saupold was arrested following an altercation at a bar in Toledo, according to an arrest report from the Toledo Police Department obtained by ESPN.com.

The Tigers released a statement Thursday night saying they were suspending Saupold after reviewing the details of last weekend's incident. The Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens, Saupold's team, had only five games remaining in their season, including Thursday's at Columbus.

The 26-year-old Saupold, who is from Perth, Australia, made his major league debut this year, going 1-1 with a 7.45 ERA in six relief appearances for the Tigers.
