KU defensive lineman arrested on DUI charges

Kansas defensive lineman Malcolm Lee has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The Kansas City Star reports that logs from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department show that Lee was released on bond shortly after his Saturday morning arrest near the football stadium.

University football communications director Katy Lonergan said Monday afternoon that staff is aware of the situation and will “handle the situation according to our internal policies.”

Lee is a sophomore transfer from Iowa Western Community College, where he played in 12 games last season, recording 43 total tackles, five sacks and 10 tackles-for-loss.
