A college football player has been suspended by his program for endangering the life of an animal. According to a report, Mississippi State indefinitely suspended offensive lineman Michael Story as a result of the charges.

Brett Hudson of The Commercial Dispatch wrote the suspension is a result of Story mistreating a dog. According to the report, police arrested Story on a misdemeanor count of aggravated cruelty to a cat or dog.

Story allegedly locked his dog in his apartment with no food or water.

Here are the details from the report.

In the complaint, the accuser, whose name is redacted, said Story "shut Kodak the Great Dane in the back room of his apartment and did not feed or water Kodak the Great Dane since Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2018, until Aug. 18, 2018. Mr. Story then stated at a later time that Kodak the Great Dane had been in the bedroom of the apartment for roughly a week's time."

New head coach Joe Moorhead wasted no time in suspending Story.

The junior offensive lineman has been working with the second-team. He started two games for the Bulldogs as a freshman, but hasn't stared for the program since.
