Kansas’ Carlton Bragg arrested on suspicion of domestic battery (UPDATED)

Breaking news in college basketball: Kansas sophomore Carlton Bragg was arrested yesterday on suspicion of domestic battery against a family member. According to the Kansas City Star, Bragg — one of Calipari’s biggest recruits in the 2015 class — remains in jail this morning with no bond listed. Kansas has confirmed the report.

Bragg’s averaging 7.8 points this season for Kansas. You may remember him as the kid who accidentally said he was committing to Kentucky when he meant to say Kansas:

That’s still painful to watch.

UPDATE: The details are out and they are not good. According the Douglas County district attorney’s office via NBC Sports’ Rob Dauster, Bragg’s girlfriend called the police and claimed he struck her and pushed her down the stairs. He pled not guilty. He also smiled in his mugshot:

Ugh. Smiling just makes it worse!

    John 8:1-8New International Version (NIV)

    8 1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

    2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

    But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

    Not as painful as what he did to his family member. Good riddance, buddy.

    the fact he is still in jail says that this isn’t a simple “he said, she said” type scenario.

    he was released from jail Friday afternoon. I still believe in innocence until proven guilty

      The presumption of innocence is gay? Wow. You actually seem proud of your ignorance.

    Smiling in a mugshot is a confession of guilt.

    Someone needs to tell him that this is not something to Bragg about.
