Kansas State defensive tackle Terrell Clinkscales faces a new charge of criminal damage to property following his arrest Sunday.

Riley County police arrested Clinkscales, a junior, at 4:01 a.m. Sunday at the 600 block of Highland Ridge Drive in Manhattan on suspicion of intimidating a witness or victim and for failing to appear in court for the offense of expired tags or driving an unregistered vehicle. On Monday, the Riley County Police Department said in a news release that Clinkscales would also face the charge of criminal damage to property.

The release indicated that Clinkscales’ arrest occurred in response to a domestic related incident. No injuries were reported.

K-State did not make Clinkscales or football coach Bill Snyder available for comment, but K-State assistant athletic director for communications Kenny Lannou said the football program is “aware of the situation, and the matter will be handled internally.”

Clinkscales was confined following the arrest, but was released after posting a $2,129 bond.

A reserve defensive lineman, Clinkscales has played in seven games and made two tackles this season. He is a native of Chicago that transferred to K-State from Dodge City Community College during the offseason.
