Mario Little Arrested in Lawrence

Two words:  Dollar Night.

If you attend the University of Kansas and have a pulse, you’ve been to one.  If you had a pulse after your first, you’ve been to many.  Looks like Mario Little had a few too many $1 Rumpy’s last night.

The Lawrence Journal World reports that senior forward Mario Little was arrested last night on charges of battery, criminal damage and criminal trespassing.

In a statement, KU coach Bill Self announced he has suspended Little indefinitely.

“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.”

Little, 22, was booked about 5 a.m., posted bond and he was released, according to a jail staffer and records. He was given notice to appear in Lawrence Municipal Court.

“I apologize for what happened last night,” Little said in a statement. “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.”

He was arrested at the corner of 12th and Ohio.  Hopefully this will be a short suspension and Little will be back on the court by the time Big 12 play begins.

No matter how you approach Dollar Night, it always gets the last laugh.  Always.
