College Basketball: Kansas State Wildcats
WICHITA, Kan. Former Kansas State basketball player Amaad Wain-right sped away from police at 100 mph after he was initially stopped following a road-rage shooting that involved his car on Jan. 17 in Overland Park, according to a Johnson County court affidavit obtained by The Kansas City Star.
Wainright has been charged with two felonies: obstructing law enforcement and fleeing or attempting to flee from police.
According to the affidavit, an Overland Park police officer spotted a white 2004 Pontiac Bonneville, matching the description of a vehicle believed to be involved in a reported shooting earlier that day, leaving Oak Park Mall around 6:55 p.m. The officer stopped the car on southbound U.S. Highway 69 past 95th Street and the driver put his hands out of the window, as asked, but drove away after he was asked to turn the car off.
