Two more football players were arrested in Manhattan, bringing the total to five arrests for the team in less than a week.

Redshirt sophomore linebacker Daniel Green was arrested for alleged possession of marijuana and driving with a suspended license in the 1000 block of Seth Child Road. His bond is set at $1,000. Green was the reserve linebacker for all Kansas State football games during the 2019 season.

Redshirt sophomore defensive back Wayne Jones III was also arrested for alleged possession of marijuana in the 1000 block of Seth Child Road. Jones started in all 13 games during the 2019 season. His bond is set at $1,000 as well.

Over the weekend, freshman linebacker DeMarrquese Hayes, redshirt freshman running back Jacardia Wright and redshirt sophomore linebacker Nick Allen were arrested in three separate incidents.

Hayes and Allen were arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Wright was arrested for failure to appear.

Head coach Chris Klieman released a statement:

“I am extremely disappointed in the poor choices made recently by some of our student-athletes,” Klieman said. “We have high expectations within our program, and when those expectations are not met, there are consequences. The high standards and expectations within our football program will not change, and the character and integrity of the players on our team will not be compromised.”
