Mississippi State DB John Michael Hankerson charged with 10 felonies

Mississippi State defensive back John Michael Hankerson has been dismissed from the program following his third arrest this month, according to ESPN.com.

This time, the South Bend, Indiana native was arrested by U.S. marshals in Horn Lake, Mississippi and charged with 10 felonies, including “five counts of armed robbery, three counts of aggravated assault and two counts of kidnapping.”

“Mr. Hankerson and two unidentified black males were together and went to the Campus Trails apartment complex, where they came across four other males and pulled handguns on them,” Phillip Miller, an investigator with the Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Office, said.

“They pistol whipped three of them in the head with their firearms. They took property from the victims and fled the scene.”

All but two charges stem from a Dec. 17 incident in Starksville.

The other charges come from an incident on Oct. 29, where Hankerson is charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault.

Hankerson did not play in any games for the Bulldogs in 2016.
