LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas has dismissed defensive lineman Chris Martin over what coach Charlie Weis calls the junior transfer's failure to follow some ``stipulations'' following his recent arrest.

Martin was expected to start in his first season with the Jayhawks. He played his freshman season at Florida and last year at City College of San Francisco.

Kansas announced his dismissal Monday in a brief statement that did not mention Martin's arrest over a May 13 incident at a Lawrence home. He was one of three men arrested on suspicion robbing people of cash and marijuana at gunpoint.

Weis said Martin had failed to follow a list of unspecified stipulations he had been required to follow ``due to recent incidents.'' The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/16c8NRj ) Martin has a June 24 court date.
