Charges have been filed against seven Michigan State football players for their involvement in a melee in the Lloyd Carr tunnel, Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office said.
A video posted on Twitter from The Detroit News showed several Spartan players in an altercation with a Wolverine player in the tunnel at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor. After weeks of investigation from the Big Ten, University of Michigan Police, and Michigan State University Police, the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office released its findings on Wednesday afternoon.
Following the altercation between members of the Michigan and Michigan State football teams on October 29, the University of Michigan Division of Public Safety and Security (UMDPSS) conducted a thorough investigation into a potential criminal liability.
At the conclusion of that investigation, UMDPSS submitted to the Prosecutor’s Office a request” “for criminal charges against several individuals — all student-athletes on the Michigan State football team,” read the statement.
