MSU football trainer charged with attempted sexual assault, domestic violence
According to the Lansing State Journal, Michigan State football athletic trainer David Jager is accused of attempted sexual assault, domestic violence and lying to a police officer.
Jager, 39, was charged with using violence against women in two district courts and was accused of assaulting his girlfriend in August 2015 and then lied about it to a police officer.
Jager is also charged with attempting to sexually assault a different woman in Lansing in February 2016. Jager’s athletic trainer profile is still active on Michigan State’s website and can be found here.
The former assistant trainer at the University of Miami was also one of 11 people named in a report as having failed to report his knowledge of Larry Nassar’s abuse before it became public. Jager’s girlfriend — who she said “groped” her — told investigators that Jager said to her that Nassar was “the best in the world.”
According to the Lansing State Journal’s Kara Berg and Megan Banta, “Jager is due back to 54B District Court for a pretrial conference in late August. He was released on a $2,500 personal recognizance bond that includes a no contact order for the woman he’s accused of assaulting. There’s no court appearances scheduled yet in 54A District Court in Lansing.”
Jager has worked as an athletic trainer for the Spartans since 2013 and also assists with both the men’s and women’s tennis teams.
