The U.S. Marshals Office in Kansas arrested Kansas State Wildcats guard Amaad Wainright. 

Wainright was arrested in downtown Kansas City on Tuesday and transferred to Johnson County, KS on Wednesday. 

A spokesperson for the office said the arrest was made due to a road rage incident in January

United States Marshal Ronald L. Miller said Wainright has been charged with fleeing, along with eluding and obstruction. 

The warrant was issued on March 28 and he was arrested around 2 p.m. on Monday. 

Court documents state that Wainright aided Trevon Marquis Barr, who has been charged with discharging a firearm at a motor vehicle. 

Barr was arrested and booked inside the Johnson County jail on Monday, the Johnson County booking log states. 

Kansas State has suspended Wainright following the arrest. 

"Due to the seriousness of the charges he has been indefinitely suspended from our men’s basketball team per athletic department policy," the university said. "We take matters such as these very seriously and will re-evaluate his status as we learn more information.”

A $50,000 bond has been requested by prosecutors for Wainright. A $100,000 bond has been requested for Barr.
