KU Football Player Charged with Felony Motor Vehicle Burglary

The Douglas County District Attorney's office says it has charged University of Kansas safety Jerome Kemp with felony motor vehicle burglary.

Kemp, a senior from Wichita, is accused of breaking into a car and stealing more than one-thousand dollars in property. He also faces misdemeanor theft and criminal damage charges.

He was released from jail Tuesday after posting $2,250 bond. He had turned himself in Monday.

A 22-year-old fellow student told Lawrence police that Kemp smashed the driver's window of her Volkswagen Jetta and took CD's and other items.

Kansas Athletics spokesman Jim Marchiony said the incident won't affect Kemp athletically because he has used up his eligibility.
