MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- Kansas State sophomore wide receiver Hunter Rison was arrested on Friday on one count of domestic battery for "knowing or reckless bodily harm to family/person in dating relationship," according to the Riley County Police Department.

Rison was arrested around 2 p.m. near College Ave. in Manhattan.

In a statement issued early Saturday morning, K-State announced Rison was suspended indefinitely for a violation of team and departmental policy.

“Our program will be one that is built on hard work and integrity and doing things the right way,” said head coach Chris Klieman in the statement. “We have extremely high expectations for our players on and off the field.”

Kansas State added Klieman will have no further comment on the matter at this time.

Rison transferred to KSU from Michigan State last year and sat out the 2018 season.

He is the son of Andre Rison, who played 12 seasons in the NFL, was a Pro Bowler for the Kansas City Chiefs in 1997 and won a Super Bowl ring with the Green Bay Packers.
