Kansas State football defensive back Duke Shelley was arrested on Tuesday morning under a warrant for failure to appear.

According to the Riley County Police Department’s arrest report, police arrested Shelley with a warrant for two unpaid traffic tickets— one for driving without proof of insurance and the other for expired or unregistered tags.

Shelley avoided confinement by paying his $500 bond. He is the third Wildcat football player to be arrested this year. Defensive end Bronson Massie was arrested in August for unpaid parking tickets, and linebacker DaQuan Patton was arrested just last week for an unpaid speeding ticket.

After having two interceptions in K-State’s 31-12 win over Oklahoma State on October 13, Shelley has missed the last two games.
