Report: arrest led to suspension, dismissal for Mississippi State LB

Last week’s indefinite suspension of Mississippi State linebacker Chris Hughes now has some context.

Per multiple outlets, Hughes was arrested last month on domestic violence-related charges — his third such arrest in two years and fifth total arrest for a misdemeanor violent crime.

Hughes was arrested on May 24 in his hometown of Mobile, Ala., on charges of third degree assault and third degree domestic violence for allegedly striking his girlfriend multiple times in the face. His is still currently in Mobile County jail awaiting his July 10 court date.

MSU officials confirmed to The Dispatch Thursday evening that Hughes has been let go from the team. This latest suspension was Hughes’ third since joining the Bulldogs. He was suspended once in 2011 for a second arrest on domestic violence charges that resulted in jail time and him missing the season opener against Memphis. He was also sidelined for one game in 2010 for a helmet-to-helmet hit

Hughes had 31 tackles in 2012 as a backup linebacker.

    This thug has no right being on any football team let alone a college campus! He must be a product of his environment with absolutely no respect for women. What a piece of garbage this character is. According to the article, MSU has indefinitely suspended him than have him his outright “walking papers”. MSU should also dismiss from the school as he is a danger to other students…..not that he is a student in the true sense of the word. It’s his fifth arrest!!! MSU has to recruit better character student/athletes. This guy belongs in prison.

    How come you NEVER post when its a Caucasian doing something wrong? Pretty peculiar…..

    “Product of his environment”? Please explain yourself. Oh wait, you’re that guy that has absolutly nothin good to say ever about the black race.

    You claim not to be racist, yet continue to use terms that are specifically used as derogatory to the black race. You stereotype a whole race for the actions of a select few. If that’s not racist, what is?!

    I’m sure daddy and grandpappy suckcocker taught you this in the good ol’ southern tradition, right?
    I guess we should forgive your ignorance as a “product of YOUR environment”, huh?

    Its 2013, there is no excuse for your line of thinking*

    Lest anyone think I condone what this player did, I don’t. I’m just tired of this poster ridiculing only black players for crimes.And for doing it under the guise of worrying about scholar athletes.

    If education was so important, why wouldn’t his take on this be to educate the perpetrators? No, he says throw them in prison because they are “thugs,gangstas,and garbage”.

    Seriously, Google gamecocker+ collegefootballtalk. Its post after post of subtle , passive/agressive racism and its sickening.
