Seven Michigan State football players face charges for their involvement in the horrific game incident in the Michigan Stadium tunnel after Michigan beat the Spartans on Oct. 29.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Washtenaw County District Attorney charged Harry Crump with one count of aggravated assault. Crump was seen swinging his helmet at graduate cornerback Jemon Green during the incident.
Five other players — linebacker Itayvion Brown, linebacker Angela Grose, cornerback Justin White, defensive end Brandon White and defensive end Zion Young — were charged with one count of aggravated assault, a misdemeanor. A seventh player, midfielder Jacoby Windmon, was charged with one count of assault and battery, a separate offense.
The prosecutor authorized the charges following a joint investigation by the University of Michigan Division of Public Safety and Security (DPSS), the Michigan State University Police Department and the Michigan State Police.
All seven players are currently serving indefinite suspensions.
A statement released by the prosecutor’s office noted that “all charges are merely allegations” and that the office “will not be commenting further on the progress of these cases.”
“We appreciate the thoughtful, deliberate approach of the Washtenaw County District Attorney’s Office to this unfortunate incident,” the president of the University of Michigan Santa Ono said in a statement. “We also want to express our concern for all the players involved, especially those injured. The University of Michigan will continue to cooperate fully with any additional reviews of this matter.”
