University of Kansas Head Men’s Basketball Coach Bill Self has suspended senior Mario Little from the team indefinitely after Little’s arrest early Thursday morning.

Little was arrested on misdemeanor charges of battery, criminal damage and criminal trespass.

“Mario remains a member of our team while we work through this process,” Self said, “but we have suspended him indefinitely from competition while we gather the facts of this incident. Mario exercised very poor judgment in his handling of a situation. We’re disappointed in his behavior; it’s unfortunate that our university, our program and his teammates all have to deal with this negative issue.”

“I apologize for what happened last night,” Little said. “I feel awful, and I understand that I will have to deal with the consequences of my actions. I accept responsibility for those actions, and I apologize to my teammates for being irresponsible.”
