Kansas State basketball player Thomas Gipson was arrested Wednesday in Junction City on suspicion of driving while his license was revoked. He was also ticketed for speeding.

Gipson, a senior forward, was stopped on U.S. 77 near the junction of I-70 at 11:56 a.m. for driving 80 mph in a 65-mph zone, Geary County undersheriff Brad Clark said. After a check revealed Gipson’s license had been revoked, he was booked into the Geary County Detention Center and was later released on $1,000 bond.

Gipson averaged 11.7 points and 6.5 rebounds as a junior.

“As is our policy in these situations, we will let the judicial process run its course,” K-State associate director for athletic communications Tom Gilbert said. “Any discipline beyond that will be handled as an internal team matter.”
