Kansas junior guard Devonte’ Graham was arrested for failing to appear at a July court date after he was cited for driving with an expired tag.
Graham said in a press release from KU Athletics that he was driving an ex-teammate’s car and thought the ticket was paid. He didn’t attend his July court date after receiving a Notice to Appear.
“That’s on me, and I apologize to everyone,” Graham said in the press release. “I learned a lesson the hard way.”
Graham was released on $196 bond, according to the booking report. It was announced later on Thursday that head coach Bill Self will not suspend the junior guard.
“Devonte’ made a mistake,” Self said in the press release. “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.”
The team won its 13-straight Big 12 regular season title after beating TCU 87-68. KU visits Texas on Saturday.
