A representative for Kansas City, Democratic Coleman was taken into custody at 1 a.m. Saturday by the Kansas State Highway Patrol on Interstate 70. According to Douglas County jail records, he was released later in the day after posting a $250 bond.

His family had been involved in an incident on Oct. 30 that resulted in him being charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. In Johnson County District Court on Nov. 2, he pleaded not guilty and posted bail, according to court records.
