LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -

A sophomore linebacker at Kansas has been dismissed from the Jayhawks after being accused of threatening a woman with a handgun.

Maciah Long, 19, of Houston was charged Monday with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony, and misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property and marijuana possession. Douglas County court records allege Long damaged or destroyed the woman's television.

Long was arrested Sunday and made a brief court appearance Monday. Court records show he said he would hire an attorney.

He remained jailed later Monday on $5,000 bond. He couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

Lawrence police declined to discuss the case because it involved alleged domestic violence.

Jayhawks coach David Beaty announced Long's dismissal from the team Monday. He played linebacker and tight end last season.
