Spartans receiver Macgarrett Kings Jr. arrested again



Spartan wide-out Macgarrett Kings Jr. just can’t help himself when it comes to being a dumbass.

According to Joe Rexrode of the Detroit Free Press, Kings was arrested at 2:36 AM Saturday for a series of offenses including disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He eventually posted a $200 bail.

Kings, who will be a senior receiver in the fall, has been charged with drunken and disorderly conduct and obstructing, resisting, hindering or assaulting a police officer, according to East Lansing 54-B District Court documents. Both are misdemeanors punishable by up to 93 days in jail and $500 in fines.

This wouldn’t be the first time though Kings has found himself on the wrong end of the law. Last April the Spartan was suspended for most of spring football after being arrested for operating while intoxicated and driving under the influence. He recorded a blood-alcohol content of 0.234 which was nearly three times the legal limit. Kings was eventually handed a 13 month probation sentence (later reduced) as well as community service.

“We’re aware of the incident,” MSU coach Mark Dantonio said in a statement. “All of our student-athletes are held to a high standard, and individuals will be held accountable for their actions. We will manage this situation internally.”

Obviously it’s a little early to tell what will happen to Kings this year as far as the team goes. He along with Burbridge and  R.J. Shelton are slated to be leading the way through the air in 2015 for the Spartans after the loss of Tony Lippett and Keith Mumphery.
