Michigan WR arraigned on charges of sexual assault, resisting a police officer
Michigan sophomore WR Grant Perry has been arraigned on four charges from October
Michigan sophomore wide receiver Grant Perry was arraigned on four charges -- including two misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree sexual assault -- on Monday stemming from an incident that occurred in East Lansing in October.
Perry was arraigned in East Lansing District Court on Monday on one felony count of assaulting, battering, resisting or obstructing an officer, two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual assault and underage drinking, according to the Lansing State Journal.
The charges stem from an incident where Perry allegedly touched a woman waiting outside a bar in downtown East Lansing and then ran from officers.
"When [police] arrived on scene, we tried to grab onto him, and we had to chase him," said Lt. Scott Wriggelsworth, spokesman for the East Lansing Police Department, to the Lansing State Journal. "In the midst of that fracas, one of our officers suffered a minor hand injury."
Michigan immediately suspended Perry once they were made aware of the incident, the school said in a statement.
"The University was made aware of the arrest of student-athlete Grant Perry earlier this fall. He was immediately suspended from all team activities at that time and missed two games. Based on the information at that time, Grant was allowed to resume team activities pending the outcome of the investigation.
Upon being informed that charges would be filed, he was immediately and indefinitely suspended from all team activities until the legal process is completed."
Perry had 13 catches for 183 yards and one touchdown for Michigan on the season as the Wolverines' fourth leading receiver.
