SPOKANE, Wash. -- Police said they arrested former Washington State University basketball player DeAngelo Casto Friday.

Casto was arrested for domestic violence at a Spokane home, according to investigators.  The alleged victim was Casto's wife.  The nature of the incident was not immediately known, nor was the condition of the alleged victim.

Casto, who graduated from Ferris High School, has been in trouble with the law before.  Casto was arrested in March of 2011 after Pullman Police saw him rolling a marijuana cigarette inside his apartment.  The Whitman County judge overseeing the case later dismissed the drug charges, saying the evidence against Casto was obtained unlawfully.

Casto left WSU after his junior year to pursue a professional basketball career, but was never picked up by a team.

The main reason behind Casto's decision to leave school reportedly was money. He had a one-year-old son at the time he wanted to provide for.

As a junior, Casto was third on the team with 12.0 points per game and led the team with 7.3 rebounds an outing, ranking 14th and sixth in the Pac-10, respectively. He ranked second in WSU’s record books with 165 career blocks over his three seasons with the Cougars.
