It’s the offseason, so get ready for more of this.
Per the Lawrence Journal-World, Kansas linebacker Ben Heeney was cited for misdemeanor battery after an incident that took place last Sunday outside a local bar. According to the paper, Heeney apparently “battered employees” at the establishment after he was asked to leave. Heeney is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 8.
“We are fully aware of the situation involving Ben,” Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis said in a statement. “We have discussed this with all of the parties involved and believe we know what truly happened. We are handling it internally with appropriate measures.”
Heeney was an All-Big 12 second-team selection as a sophomore in 2012. He led the team with 112 tackles and also recorded 12 TFL and a sack.
