It’s bad enough for Andre McDonald that he was sentenced to five days in jail for violating a dog ordinance. Even worse? The Kansas State tight end is now facing a five-figure lawsuit for good measure.
According to the Kansas City Star, a man who claims he was bitten multiple times by McDonald’s pit bull “Zeke” (not pictured) in late December of last year filed suit in Riley County (Kan.) District Court. The man is suing McDonald for $60,000, the Kansas City Star writes, “for past and future pain and suffering, past and future mental anguish, permanent disfigurement and permanent physical injuries.”
The lawsuit was filed last week, two days after McDonald began serving his five-day sentence.
McDonald was found to be in violation of Manhattan’s dangerous dog ordinance over the incident that led to the lawsuit. Because McDonald was on probation for a previous domestic battery conviction, that violation meant the TE violated his probation and triggered the jail term.
The Wildcats open the season this weekend, but head coach Bill Snyder has already stated that McDonald, a backup, will not play in the opener against Missouri State. Last season, McDonald caught 14 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns.
