Two Kansas State players, Daniel Green and Wayne Jones, were arrested on Monday night, as first reported by GoPowercat.
According to the Riley County KS Police Department, Green and Jones, who both live at 3901 Bayside Way, No. 304 in Manhattan, were on charges of possession of marijuana, while Green was also cited with a driving while suspended charge. Both posted bonds of $1,000, according to the RCPD arrest report.
Head coach Chris Klieman said in a press release, “I am extremely disappointed in the poor choices made recently by some of our student-athletes. We have high expectations within our program, and when those expectations are not met, there are consequences. The high standards and expectations within our football program will not change, and the character and integrity of the players on our team will not be compromised.”
Klieman said he will handle all disciplinary action internally.
Jones finished last season third on the team with 58 tackles and Green had 33 tackles on the season for a Kansas State defense that was one of the best in the Big 12 in 2019.
It’s been a rough few days for Kansas State players and the law, as three Wildcats were arrested over the weekend, with charges including suspicion of DUI and an outstanding warrant.
