URBANA, Ill. (AP) - Authorities say University of Illinois football staff member and former player Matt Sinclair has been charged after allegedly pointing an unloaded handgun at a vehicle carrying other staff members.

Champaign County State's Attorney Julia Rietz says Sinclair was arraigned Monday on two felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon. He was arrested Saturday after Illinois' game at Purdue.

Rietz says someone called police to report a driver pointing a gun out of a truck on Interstate 74 in eastern Illinois. Police say Sinclair said he pointed the gun as a joke.

A phone listing for Sinclair is disconnected and he does not yet have a lawyer.

Sinclair is Illinois' assistant director of player personnel and relations. He played at Illinois from 2001-2004.

An athletic department spokesman declined comment.
