Kansas State linebacker DaQuan Patton was arrested for failure to appear Sunday evening in Manhattan.
Riley County police arrested Patton at 6:08 p.m. at a convenience store in the 1100 block of Bluemont Avenue. He was released after paying his bond of $1,000.
The charge stemmed from a warrant against Patton in Manhattan Municipal Court for an unpaid speeding ticket, according to Riley County Police Department spokesperson Hali Rowland.
A spokesman for the K-State football team did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
