MANHATTAN - Kansas State running back Leon Patton has been dismissed from the football team after being charged with one count of child abuse for allegedly shaking a 2-month-old boy.
Police say that the 20-year-old Patton was arrested and jailed
yesterday on $30,000 bond for a July 15 incident. The arrest warrant stated that Patton allegedly shook the now-4-month-old baby ``feloniously and intentionally.''
Investigators would not provide information about the now-4-month-old boy's current whereabouts or condition. Patton already had been suspended from the team after a July traffic stop led to the discovery of outstanding warrants from 2007, one of them for misdemeanor theft for stealing two video games from a Pottawatomie County Wal-Mart.
