Michigan State wide receiver Macgarrett Kings Jr. was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors on Saturday, according to the Detroit Free Press.

According to court documents obtained by the Free Press, Kings was charged with drunken and disorderly conduct and obstructing, resisting, hindering or assaulting a police officer.

"We're aware of the incident," Spartans coach Mark Dantonio said in a statement. "All of our student-athletes are held to a high standard, and individuals will be held accountable for their actions. We will manage this situation internally."

In April 2014, Kings was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and operating while intoxicated and suspended from the team. He pleaded guilty to the DUI charge, while the OWI charge was dropped and he was sentenced to 13 months probation. Kings was reinstated to the team in July.

According to the Free Press, Kings' probation, which prohibited him from consuming alcohol, ended early after his attorney filed a motion in December and he made a final payoff in January. 

Kings, who will be a senior in the fall, caught 29 catches for 404 yards and one touchdown last season.
