Kansas State's Amaad Wainright charged, suspended from team

April 3, 2018

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Kansas State guard Amaad Wainright is suspended from the Wildcats basketball team after being charged when someone allegedly fired shots from his car in January.

The U.S. Marshals Service says Wainright was arrested Tuesday. He is charged with obstruction, and fleeing and eluding.

The Kansas City Star reports the charges stem from an incident Jan. 17 in Overland Park, Kansas. Police said a passenger in Wainright's car fired a handgun into another car in a possible road rage incident. No one was injured and no one was arrested at the time.

Kansas State athletic director Gene Taylor says Wainright has been suspended indefinitely. His status will be re-evaluated after the investigation is complete.

Wainright, a junior, didn't respond to an email to his student account Tuesday.
