Williams led the Jayhawks ground game this year, tallying seven touchdowns in his freshman season.
Kansas running back Anthony 'Pooka' Williams was arrested Thursday on charges of domestic battery, according to an arrest report obtained by Jesse Newell of the Kansas City Star. No other details regarding the incident that led to his arrest have been disclosed.
Williams was booked into the Douglas County Jail at 3 p.m. on Thursday.
Jayhawks coach Les Miles said Williams has been suspended from all team-related activities as the incident is investigated.
"We are aware of a reported incident involving Pooka Williams and we are taking these allegations very seriously," Miles said, per Newell. "We have suspended Pooka from all team-related activities pending further investigation.”
Williams, a New Orleans native, led Kansas in rushing yards in 2018 with 1,125 and seven touchdowns on 161 carries during his freshman campaign. The Jayhawks finished the season at 3–9.
