Aaron Beasley Age
Aaron Beasley is 20 years old.
Tennessee announced on Monday night it has suspended linebacker Aaron Beasley indefinitely after the junior linebacker had been accused of animal cruelty following an incident involving the six-month old cat belonging to his girlfriend’s roommate. The incident remains under investigation by the Knoxville Police Department, but Beasley has not been arrested or charged in the case. Tennessee is in the middle of spring practice under new head coach Josh Heupel.
The Vols released the following statement on Monday night: “We have received the incident report from the Knoxville Police Department. Aaron Beasley has been suspended indefinitely from all football team activities as we await further information.”
The 6-foot-1, 225-pound Beasley signed with Tennessee out of Heard County High School in Franklin, Ga., in 2019 and spent part of his freshman season at safety and running back before settling into being a linebacker. He played exclusively on special teams as a freshman in 2019, and was a backup linebacker who saw action in several games as a defensive reserve last season. Beasley had seven tackles, half a tackle for loss and a forced fumble in eight games in 2020 and had two tackles in nine games in 2019.
The incident detailed in the KPD report includes the cat’s owner, an 18-year-old woman, and two of her roommates, another 18-year-old woman and Beasley’s 21-year-old girlfriend.
The kitten had to be taken to the vet “due to severe trauma” and had a small concussion and kidney failure, according to the KPD incident report. The owner of the cat had left it at the house while she was in the process of moving out and told police on Thursday that she came home to find the cat under her dresser and “not wanting to walk or stand up.” On a GoFundMe page she started to help her pay for the veterinary bills, the woman claims Beasley “hit and kicked (the cat), locked him in the toilet bowl, and held him upside down by his tail” and wrote the cat “has brain damage,” will have a hard time walking, had a bleeding hemorrhage on his kidney, bladder clots and was in an oxygen tank.
Beasley’s girlfriend told police she and Beasley were at the house and the cat “is constantly eating their food and chewing through boxes.” According to the incident report, Beasley and his girlfriend found the cat in their room eating their food and he locked it in the bathroom. His girlfriend told police he left not long after putting the cat in the bathroom and denied he hit the cat or put it in the toilet, and when she opened the bathroom door three hours later the cat ran into its owner’s room.
The other roommate who was present during the time in question told police she heard Beasley’s girlfriend saying “you can’t do that” to Beasley and then start crying, and she also told police she has text messages from Beasley’s girlfriend “stating her boyfriend put the cat in the toilet.”
The GoFundMe page for the cat has raised more than $5,200 as of Monday evening, well over its $4,200 goal.
Police had spoken to the pet owner’s roommate, who happens to be Aaron Beasley’s girlfriend as well as another roommate of the two. According to Aaron’s girlfriend, they found the cat eating leftover food in her room, which was a recurring issue. Aaron then locked the animal in a bathroom and released it after a few hours when he ran back into the owner’s bedroom. His girlfriend denied seeing Aaron hit the kitten or put him in the toilet.
However, the other roommate claimed that she heard Aaron’s girlfriend that night saying, “You can’t do that” to him and started crying. She added that she had a text from her saying Aaron put the kitten in the toilet.
