The latest incident that results in the “Days Without An Arrest” ticker being reset to double zeroes looks to be a rather serious one.
According to the Topeka Capital-Journal, Kansas’ Mark Thomas was arrested Sunday morning in connection to an aggravated sexual battery. As of now Thomas has not been officially charged with crime, although he remains in jail with no bond set.
The school acted with swiftness in addressing the wide receiver’s situation.
“Mark Thomas has been suspended indefinitely from the football team, pending further findings in the case,” KU stated in a release.
Thomas had spent two seasons at the JUCO level before transferring to the Jayhawks last year. He took a redshirt his first season in Lawrence.
