The Mississippi State Bulldogs have suspended starting safety Justin Cox indefinitely after he was arrested Friday on felony aggravated domestic violence and burglary charges.
According to the Starkville Daily News, “Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Brett Watson said deputies responded to a burglary call on Rocky Road in the Aspen Heights apartment complex at about 3 a.m. Friday. He said upon arrival, deputies found a female victim with an injury to her head. Watson would not identify the victim.
“Watson said deputies arrested Cox, a 21-year-old West Point native, at the scene on suspicion of burglary of a dwelling and aggravated domestic violence and booked him into Oktibbeha County Jail.”
Cox joined the Bulldogs in 2013 as a highly-rated junior college prospect from East Mississippi CC. He has 21 tackles and one interception on the season.
This past week the Michigan Wolverines dismissed star DE Frank Clark from the team after he was arrested for domestic violence.
