— K-State tight end Andre McDonald’s dog problems may only be getting started.

Two days after McDonald, a junior from Choctaw, Okla., began serving a five-day sanction for violating Manhattan’s dangerous dog ordinance, a violation of his probation that stemmed from a 2011 arrest, Manhattan resident Brandon Robb filed a lawsuit against McDonald in Riley County Court. Robb is suing for $60,000.

According to court documents, Robb alleges that McDonald’s pit bull, Zeke, bit him “numerous times” on Dec. 23, 2011, in the 2400 block of Himes Road while he was walking another dog.

Robb is seeking $60,000 in compensation “for past and future pain and suffering, past and future mental anguish, permanent disfigurement and permanent physical injuries.”

Attempts to reach Robb for further comment have been unsuccessful.

Snyder said earlier this week that McDonald will not play against Missouri State on Saturday.
