Missouri wide receiver arrested, dismissed from team

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri wide receiver Maurice Massey has been dismissed from the team after being arrested, school officials said Monday.

Massey, 20, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of third-degree domestic assault, fourth-degree assault and first-degree property damage, according to the Boone County Sheriff Department. He was released after bonding out of jail.

Massey had not played for the Tigers this year after he opted out of the season because of the coronavirus outbreak.

“Maurice Massey has been dismissed from the Mizzou Football program for a violation of team rules,” the university said. “Since electing to opt out of the 2020 football season due to COVID-19 last month, he has not been involved in any of our practices or team activities.”

A former three-star recruit from St. Louis, Massey played in four games for Missouri last year but did not record a catch.

Missouri (2-2) takes a two-game winning streak to No. 10 Florida (2-1) on Saturday.
