Kansas' Devonte' Graham arrested shortly after Jawhawks clinch Big 12 title
Graham was arrested for suspicion of failure to appear stemming from an expired tag ticket
Kansas guard Devonte’ Graham was arrested and booked into the Douglas County Jail late on Wednesday night on suspicion of failing to appear for court, according to a report from KUSports.com. The arrest came shortly after the Jayhawks with a win over TCU.
The charge, according to the report, stems from an expired tag ticket which was filed in June, 2016, in Lawrence municipal court.
Graham, who turned 22 on Wednesday, was arrested on Jayhawk Boulevard and released later on Wednesday night after posting a $196 bond.
“This is my fault,” Graham said in a statement on Thursday morning. “I was driving an ex-teammate’s car and I thought the ticket was paid so I didn’t pay attention to the Notice to Appear that I got. That’s on me, and I apologize to everyone. I learned a lesson the hard way.”
Graham was a key part in Kansas’ 87-68 win over TCU to secure another Big 12 title for Bill Self and the Jayhawks program, scoring 17 points on 4-of-10 shooting against the Horned Frogs.
“Devonte’ made a mistake,” Bill Self said. “This is why we tell our guys to inform us when they receive a citation, no matter how minor. For their sake we don’t want something so minor to become a story.”
Graham is averaging 13.1 points and 4.4 assists per game this season for No. 3 Kansas.
