Gipson arrested outside Junction City

By Joel Jellison

Kansas State forward Thomas Gipson was arrested in Geary County on Wednesday morning on suspicion of driving on a revoked license and speeding.

Arrest reports from the Geary County Sheriff’s Department indicate Gipson was stopped on U.S. Highway 77, south of exit 295 at 11:56 a.m. for allegedly driving 80 miles per hour in a 65 mile-per-hour zone. Records showed Gipson was driving under a revoked license.

Gipson, a Cedar Hill, Texas, native, was booked at the Geary County Detention Center and later released on $1,000 bond. His court date has not been set. Geary County Sheriff Tony Wolf said the license was revoked in Texas, but as of Friday morning didn’t know why.

In a statement, K-State assistant sports information director Tom Gilbert said, “As is our policy in these situations, we will let the judicial process run its course. Any discipline beyond that will be handled as an internal team matter.”

Gipson, a senior-to-be for K-State, averaged 11.5 points and 6.5 rebounds last season and was named honorable mention All-Big 12.
