Mario Pender dismissed from FSU football team

Florida State Athletics moved quickly on this one.

Glenn Beil-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier today, we reported that Florida State running back Mario Pender had been arrested for battery and obstruction. It was just a matter of time before FSU Athletics spoke up about the news, and that time has come sooner rather than later, in the form of Pender's permanent dismissal from the team.

Per FSU: "Florida State Athletics announced today that Mario Pender has been permanently dismissed from the football team following his arrest earlier in the day. The Athletics Department will have no further comment at this time."
