After reviewing the police report investigating the incident that occurred in the tunnel at Michigan Stadium following the Michigan State-Michigan game on Oct. 29, the Washtenaw County Prosecutor announced on Wednesday that charges are being filed against seven MSU football players.

Khary Crump, who has been suspended from Michigan State’s team since Oct. 30, is being charged with one count of felonious assault. He is the lone player for MSU being charged with a felony. Crump is being charged with violation of MCL 750.82.

The other three players who were also suspended on Oct. 30, Itayvion “Tank” Brown, Angelo Grose, and Zion Young, all face one count each of violating MCL 750.81a. Aggravated assault is a misdemeanor charge.

Two other players for Michigan State, Justin White and Brandon Wright, are also each being charged with one count of aggravated assault. Jacoby Windmon is being charged with one count of assault and battery under MCL 750.81. Those three players have been suspended from the football team since Nov. 1.

Freshman Malcolm Jones was also suspended by Tucker on Nov. 1, but is not listed among those being charged on Wednesday.

The Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office also noted in its press release that “All charges are merely allegations. Those charged are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.”

Michigan State University interim President Teresa Woodruff has released a statement in the hours following the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s announcement of charges being filed. President Woodruff spoke of the importance of “restorative justice practices” and pledged that MSU will continue to support its student-athletes through the process.
