A former Kansas University football player was charged Monday with breaking into a residence and threatening a man who lived there.
Jerome M. Kemp, 24, is being held in Douglas County Jail on $25,000 bond after he was arrested early Saturday morning.
Kemp allegedly broke into a 25-year-old man's apartment in the 4500 block of Overland Drive. He was charged with aggravated battery, two counts of making a criminal threat, and misdemeanor charges of battery and damage to property.
Kemp played safety for KU. Last year, at the end of his senior season, he was charged in Douglas County with car burglary and theft. In a plea agreement, Kemp pleaded guilty to misdemeanor property damage in return for the dismissal of car burglary and misdemeanor theft charges. He was placed on probation and ordered to pay restitution.
