LAWRENCE (KSNT) – KU basketball forward Jalen Wilson was arrested for suspicion of DUI Halloween morning, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

“We are aware of the incident involving Jalen Wilson last night, and are disappointed in his decisions. We are looking into the situation as we speak and will determine potential consequences with him once we have the rest of the details.”

Statement from Kansas head coach Bill Self

Shortly before 2 a.m., deputies saw that Wilson was not maintaining his lane position. After pulling him over, deputies performed field sobriety tests, and as a result, he was arrested, according to the sheriff’s office. Jail records show the redshirt sophomore was arrested at 2:16 a.m. at 400 W 23rd St. He was released about two hours later.

The Jayhawks unofficially kick off their season Wednesday against Emporia State in an exhibition. A week from Tuesday, Kansas plays its first regular season game against Michigan State in New York City, in the Champions Classic.
