Kansas RB James Sims Arrested Sunday

Monday April 9th, 2012

Kansas junior running back James Sims was arrested early Sunday on charges of operating a vehicle under the influence, according to a report in the Lawrence Journal-World.

Sims, 20, was arrested on campus on Jayhawk Boulevard shortly after 2:15am on Sunday, which was confirmed by the Kansas associate athletic director Jim Marchiony.

Back in January, Kansas head coach Charlie Weis had dismissed ten players from the team, including highly-recruited freshman running back Darrian Miller.  With the team already running thin at the position, the Jayhawks are now faced with the decision to discipline Sims. Marchiony confirmed to the paper that the team will handle Sim’s discipline internally. In his last two seasons with the Jayhawks, Sims rushed for 1,469 yards and 18 touchdowns, starting in all 12 games last season.
