Tennessee linebacker Aaron Beasley has been indefinitely suspended from all team activities after being accused of abusing a kitten. The Knoxville Police Department conducted an investigation into the animal abuse case after a fellow Tennessee student, Kaylee Scarbrough, found her six-month old kitten severely injured.
The student told police that she strongly believes Beasley, who is her roommate’s boyfriend, harmed the kitten. Following the abuse, the kitten was unable to walk and was screaming in pain when anyone went near him.
“We have received the incident report from the Knoxville Police Department. Aaron Beasley has been suspended indefinitely from all football team activities as we await further information,” Assistant Athletic Director for Football Communications Bill Martin
The kitten was rushed to a veterinarian clinic in Knoxville and was treated for a brain injury sustained from blunt force trauma to the head. It was also treated for internal bleeding and left kidney bruising.
