Singletary arrested Sunday

By admin Published: September 2, 2008

Kent State basketball player Chris Singletary was arrested early Sunday morning for violating a noise ordinance after receiving a warning at his Olympus Drive apartment, according to a Kent police report.

Singletary, 20, became uncooperative with police offers on their second visit to the residence and was arrested, the report said.

The junior guard also was charged with resisting arrest, for which he sustained wrist and shoulder injuries, according to the report.

"Coach Ford and I are gathering the facts from those involved and the Kent
City Police. Once we determine the facts we will take appropriate action," Kent State Director of Athletics Laing Kennedy said.

"In the meantime we will continue to support Chris and value him as a member
of the program."

This is the fourth time in less than a year the Chicago native has had a run-in with a local law enforcement agency, according to Portage County court records. Singletary was suspended for one game last season following an OVI arrest Jan. 26.

On March 10, he was charged with nuisance party regulations. He also was arrested on April 7 for driving under DUI suspension.

Singletary averaged 10.3 points and 3.2 rebounds a game last season. He was released on bond early Sunday morning and is scheduled to appear in court at 8:15 a.m. Thursday.
