Mississippi State redshirt defensive end Anfernee Mullins was arrested Friday on a simple assault charge by the Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Department.
No other details were made available on Mullins’ arrest, which the Clarion Ledger first reported.
“Both the dean of students office and the athletics department are aware of an off-campus incident involving Anfernee Mullins, and are working jointly to learn more about the situation,” Mississippi State team spokesman Bill Martin wrote in a statement.
Mullins, a Aliceville, Alabama native, redshirted this past season. The 6-foot-3, 259-pounder has spent the spring learning the new “viper” position in Peter Sirmon‘s defense. He made two tackles including one for loss and a sack during State’s first spring scrimmage last Saturday.
Former Bulldogs Dak Prescott, P.J. Jones and Chris Jones have also been arrested in the last month. MSU signee Jeffery Simmons also faces a simple assault charge.
