Michigan receiver charged with sexual assault in East Lansing
According to the Lansing State Journal, Michigan receiver Grant Perry was arraigned Wednesday on four counts of sexual assault for an incident that took place in East Lansing in October.
Perry was suspended immediately and indefinitely from all team activities until the legal process is completed.
Police records showed that the sophomore wideout was arraigned in East Lansing District Court on one felony count of assaulting, battering, resisting or obstructing an officer, two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual assault and an underage drinking charge.
The incident occurred when Perry was allegedly touching a female while waiting outside of an East Lansing bar at 12:20 a.m. on Oct. 15. According to the report, cops chased Perry and one of the officers suffered a minor hand injury.
That occurred during Michigan’s bye week. The Royal Oak, Mich. native was suspended by Jim Harbaugh the following game for what he called “disciplinary reasons.”
Perry didn’t play in three games after the alleged assault occurred. He was, however, allowed to play in the final four games of the season because of the outcome of the investigation was unknown at the time.
According to the report, Perry turned himself in and was released on a personal recognizance bond.
