Missouri Suspends QB Maty Mauk After Video Of Him Allegedly Snorting Cocaine Surfaces
Missouri indefinitely suspended quarterback Maty Mauk Monday night, after a video surfaced on Twitter that shows a man, who is allegedly Mauk, snorting a line of white powder that the person who posted claims is cocaine.
The video was posted Monday night on twitter by an anonymous person using the handle of Ray King, but the account is not verified.
Missouri AD Mack Rhoades and coach Barry Odom immediately suspended Mauk Monday night.
Rhodes and Odom say in their joint statement they are "gathering information regarding the video in question." They say they will take "appropriate action" once they have all the facts.
"We are currently gathering information regarding the video in question. This is an issue we take very seriously and one that will not be tolerated within our program. We will take the appropriate action once we have all the facts. In the interim, Maty Mauk has been indefinitely suspended from the Mizzou football program."
It is Mauk's third suspension in the last four months. He was suspended in September for an undisclosed violation of team policy and again in November for unspecified disciplinary reasons.
A teammate of Mauk's tweeted that the video is from two years ago.
