— Kansas State tight end Andre McDonald began serving a five-day sanction in the Riley County jail Sunday for violating his probation.

Manhattan city prosecutor Kassie McEntire said McDonald was convicted of a violation of the city’s dangerous dog ordinance. McDonald was on probation after being arrested last year when he was cited with domestic battery and possession of alcohol by a minor in Manhattan’s Aggieville district.

The dangerous dog ordinance is elaborate. But McEntire said McDonald’s violation stemmed from owning an aggressive dog.

McDonald is set to begin his junior season with the Wildcats. The 6-foot-8, 264-pounder came to K-State from Choctaw, Okla. In his first two seasons he caught 14 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns. He missed K-State's first game last season after his arrest.

A team spokesman said K-State coach Bill Snyder is aware of McDonald's situation and will handle it internally.
