Moorhead: Story back in active role with team

STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State football coach Joe Moorhead said offensive lineman Michael Story is back to a full participatory role on the team after his August arrest for animal cruelty. 

 

"Michael served his two-game suspension and has taken care of other things he needed to do off the field in terms of accountability, some community service and some other things he needed to do," Moorhead said. "Michael will be back this week." 

 

The Dispatch learned through a records request with the Starkville Municipal Court that Story was arrested on a misdemeanor count of aggravated cruelty to a cat or dog. The complaint, which had the accuser's name redacted, accused Story of leaving 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." 

 

Story was projected to be a second-string offensive lineman in the preseason.
