Greenville, NC: Eastern Carolina University football player Darrell Montese Overton was keeping a pit bull owned by Nicole Phillips in his apartment. Phillips moved and abandoned the dog in the apartment. The dog was found in the apartment alone with no water. The utilities had been shut off. When asked about the dog, Overton and Phillips had conflicting stories as to the situation. Authorities gave Overton the opportunity to surrender the dog, however he resisted. Animal Control took custody of the dog. Overton and Phillips were arrested and charged with one count each for cruelty to animals and abandonment to animals.

Overton has been suspended from the team pending the outcome of the investigation.

      They need to be charged with heavy jail time for the abuse of this pit bull who they left to die. They need to know how it feels to be tortured like that sweet dog was. If they don't get a heavy jail time, they & others will think they can get away with abusing pets. Also they should never be allowed any type of pet, not even a gold fish.
