Wichita State forward Teddy Allen was arrested and booked on suspicion of domestic violence, theft and criminal damage to property.

He was taken into custody early Thursday after a woman - identified only as a woman in her 20s - accused Allen of battering her. He was booked into Sedgwick County Jail in Wichita and later released on bond.

“We are aware of the situation regarding men’s basketball student-athlete Teddy Allen and are gathering additional details in order to gain a broader understanding of the situation,” school athletic director Darron Boatright said in a statement. “We will have no further comment at this time.”

Allen, 21, transferred from West Virginia a year ago and sat out the 2018-19 season after the NCAA declined his request to play immediately.

A redshirt sophomore, he was projected as a starter and expected to be a key contributor for the Shockers.

The 6-foot-5 Allen played in 35 games as a freshman for West Virginia, averaging 7.0 points and 2.7 rebounds in 11.9 minutes per game.
