Kansas State Wildcats guard Amaad Wainright was arrested on Tuesday by U.S. Marshals following a road rage incident in January, according to KMBC.com

He has also been suspended indefinitely by Kansas State.

"We are aware of Ahmad's [SIC] situation, and due to the seriousness of the charges he has been indefinitely suspended from our men's basketball team per athletic department policy," Kansas State Director of Athletics Gene Taylor said in a statement, per Chris Lilly of WIBW.com. "We take matters such as these very seriously and will re-evaluate his status as we learn more information."

According to KMBC's report, "Police said Wainright’s vehicle was involved in a road rage incident that occurred at rush hour on I-435 between State Line Road and Roe back in January. Shots were fired during that incident, however, no one was hurt."

Kellis Robinett and Ian Cummings of the Wichita Eagle added that Wainright was reportedly being charged with felony counts of fleeing and eluding and obstruction. Per that report, police said a passenger in Wainright's car fired a shot at another vehicle. 

Wainright, a junior, averaged 2.8 points and 2.3 rebounds in 13.1 minutes per game off Kansas State's bench this season.
