Kansas University basketball forward C.J. Giles was cited by police for battering a female KU student Monday night, days after he was reinstated to the team following a suspension for personal problems.
According a KU police report, the 20-year-old woman told police she was in Giles' apartment in Jayhawker Towers Monday night when he got a phone call from another woman, and told her to leave. She asked why, according to a report, and he told her his girlfriend was on her way to his room.
She told officers she didn't know Giles had a girlfriend, and that when she asked him about it, he got angry, grabbed her by the ankles and dragged her off his bed onto the floor. She told officers he continued to drag her into the hallway as she tried to get away, and that he then "struck her in the left side of her head by her ear" with his closed fist. She left the apartment and reported the incident to police at 11:30 p.m.
Giles admitted to police that he dragged the woman across the floor, the report says, but denied hitting her in the head. He was not taken into custody but was given a notice to appear in municipal court for battery.
KU spokesman Jim Marchiony confirmed the university is aware of the situation, and is gathering information. Marchiony had no other comment.
