LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Kansas forward Carlton Bragg Jr. has been arrested on suspicion of domestic battery.

The 20-year-old sophomore from Cleveland was taken into custody Thursday and accused of causing “reckless bodily harm to a family member,” according to booking records. His case was forwarded to the Douglas County prosecutor but no charges had been filed as of Friday morning.

Kansas associate athletic director Jim Marchiony said the school is aware of the situation and was still gathering facts. It is unclear whether Bragg will play Saturday against Nebraska.

Bragg has appeared in all nine games with five starts for the third-ranked Jayhawks this season, and is averaging 7.8 points and 5.3 rebounds in 16 minutes.
