Tennessee linebacker Aaron Beasley has reportedly been suspended from the team indefinitely.
According to WBIR, Beasley has been suspended indefinitely after he was accused of abusing a cat. Beasley is accused of abusing his girlfriend’s roommate’s cat last week after he allegedly found it eating leftover food while returning to the spot with his girlfriend.

The cat allegedly has brain damage and was internally bleeding after being kicked. The police are aware of the allegations, but Beasley hasn’t been charged with a crime at this time.
It’s important to note that the cat’s owner never saw Beasley hit the cat. He’s accused of locking it in a bathroom and possibly putting it in a toilet, which was also not seen.

Obviously, this is a dicey situation because the allegations are serious, but none of the abuse was reportedly seen. It’s all seemingly hearsay at this point in time, and Beasley hasn’t been charged with a crime.
Having said that, the Volunteers clearly aren’t taking an allegation of animal abuse lightly and Beasley has been suspended pending the outcome of the situation.
