5 Michigan State players involved in Michigan Stadium tunnel scuffle arraigned on misdemeanor assault charges
Five Michigan State Spartans have been arraigned on misdemeanor assault charges following the incident in October after the Michigan-Michigan State game per the Detroit News. A pretrial date has been set for Dec. 15th and each player has posted a $10,000 personal-recognizance bonds.
Itayvion Brown, Angelo Grose, Justin White, Brandon Wright and Zion Young are scheduled to speak before Judge Karen Quinlan Valvo which will officially begin the trial process. Interestingly enough, two of the Michigan State lawyers have claimed bias based on two of the judges being Michigan graduates.
The situation is unique to both programs and both institutions. Tamara Garwood, a 15th district judge, ordered that the players would have to limit contact to football purposes only.
There was also a dispute during Friday’s meeting that the Michigan State players were being forced unjustly to take drug and alcohol tests prior to being released on bond.
