K-State student involved in court storm cited for disorderly conduct

Wednesday February 25th, 2015

Kansas State police announced on Wednesday that a student who stormed the court in celebration of the Wildcats' win over No. 8 Kansas on Monday night has been issued a notice to appear for disorderly conduct

In a press release, Kansas State said that Nathan Power voluntarily met with police and was "cooperative throughout the process." A person who identified himself as Nathan Power admitted to pushing Jayhawks forward Jamari Traylor in a letter to The Collegian.

Kansas State police announced on Twitter on Tuesday that it wanted help identifying a fan, but later said that "we are no longer looking for the person of interest in the picture." 

"On Feb. 24, Nathan Power voluntarily met with K-State police and was issued a notice to appear for disorderly conduct," Kansas State said in a press release on Wednesday. "Power was cooperative throughout the process, and the K-State Police Department considers this matter closed."

After the game, Kansas coach Bill Self addressed the court-storming.

"It’s fine if you want to celebrate when you beat us, that’s your business," Self said. "That’s fine. But at least it shouldn’t put anybody at risk from a safety standpoint. Somebody is going to hit a player, the player is going to retaliate, you're going to have lawsuits—it's not right. At least (celebrate) around center court."
