Kansas University standout Brady Morningstar, who was recently arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, did not appear Friday in Douglas County District Court, as originally scheduled. The hearing was canceled.
Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson said Morningstar has applied for a diversion in the case, which would be reviewed by his office.
It’s unclear whether Morningstar will make an appearance in court.
Prosecutors have charged the basketball player with DUI, speeding and lane violations, all misdemeanors.
Morningstar, 23, had nearly twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system when he was arrested about 3:30 a.m. Oct. 3 on the Kansas Turnpike, just east of Lawrence, according to police reports.
He was booked into Douglas County Jail, but released the same day on $250 bond.
The KHP report said Morningstar was driving 78 mph in a 70 mph zone and weaved out of a lane multiple times as he traveled west on the Kansas Turnpike.
As a result of his arrest and violation of the basketball team’s curfew, the junior basketball guard from Lawrence has been suspended from playing in any games during the first semester.
