Michigan State’s Kings pleads down to littering charge

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan State wide receiver Macgarrett Kings has admitted responsibility for public littering, pleading down from two misdemeanors stemming from a Feb. 28 arrest.

Court records show Kings had charges of drunk and disorderly conduct and obstructing or resisting an officer dismissed. Public littering is a civil infraction.

Kings caught 29 passes for 404 yards last season for the Spartans as a junior. He could play a big role this upcoming season with receivers Tony Lippett and Keith Mumphery having used up their eligibility.

Kings was arrested in April 2014 for driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.23 percent, nearly triple the legal limit of 0.08 percent. He pleaded guilty and received probation.
