Kansas’s Carlton Bragg Pleads Not Guilty to Domestic Battery
Kansas sophomore forward Carlton Bragg Jr. was arrested by police on suspicion of domestic battery against a family member, according to the Kansas City Star and other local reports.
Bragg was arrested at around 1 a.m. Friday. Bond was set at $500 and he pleaded not guilty. He was released from jail later Friday.
“I assure you, he wants to get this resolved,” Bragg’s attorney, Hatem Chahine, told the Star.

“We’re aware of the situation and we are gathering facts and based on what we discover we will act appropriately,” KU associate athletic director Jim Marciony said in a statement.
”We’re still trying to gather as much information as we can,” Kansas head coach Bill Self added. “I will not comment further until we are able to get information other than the fact that it’s obviously a charge that we take seriously.”
