Kansas running back John Randle was dismissed from the football team following an alleged battery incident outside of It's Brothers Bar and Grill in Lawrence.
Mark Mangino, Kansas
football coach, said that the team would continue to support Randle in any way possible. He will be able to remain on scholarship if he continues at KU. Mangino said the dismissal was for a violation of team rules.
The incident, which was witnessed by a police officer at the site, was not Randle's first with the law since coming to Kansas. He missed the first half of the 2004 season-opening Tulsa game while serving a suspension for an arrest last spring.
The University of Kansas athletics department declined comment before more information was made available.
