You might have read this story for instance on SwimVortex May 8th was suspended indefinetely due to a violation of team rules.

“We are disappointed in some of the choices Dan Wallace made,” head coach Gregg Troy said in a statement released by Florida Athletics, without any nearer explanation of what caused the suspension.

Now you can read for instance on Edinburgh News that Wallace was arrested in the US for urinating on a police car.

If it does result in his being thrown off Team Scotland, it would be a personal disaster for the 21-year-old and his parents Derek and Tanya, who sold the family home to pay for his fees at the University of Florida.
