Michigan St. suspends four more players after postgame scuffle

Michigan State Athletic Director Alan Haller and soccer coach Mel Tucker announced four new suspensions on Tuesday following the altercation in the tunnel at Michigan Stadium following the Spartans’ loss to the Wolverines on Saturday night.

Defensive ends Jacoby Windmon and Brandon Wright and cornerbacks Justin White and Malcolm Jones are now suspended indefinitely.

Earlier, Michigan State suspended linebacker Tank Brown, safety Angelo Grose, defensive end Zion Young and cornerback Khary Crump for their involvement.

“We are transparently working with law enforcement and the Big Ten conference to evaluate additional facts and evidence related to the events in Ann Arbor,” Haller and Tucker said in a statement. “We will continue to take appropriate action on this matter as we learn more. The student and athlete suspensions remain in effect pending investigations.

The suspensions stem from a fight that took place after the state rivalry game at Michigan Tunnel. Detroit News video showed a group of Michigan State players attacking Michigan defenseman Ja’Den McBurrows.

New video emerged from ABC’s tunnel camera on Monday showing Crump brandishing his helmet at Michigan defenseman Gemon Green. The video also shows Windmon putting his helmet back on before engaging in the fight with Green.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh spoke to reporters Monday and said he couldn’t imagine that not leading to criminal charges for Michigan State players.

“It has to be accounted for,” he said. “There must be a full, thorough and timely investigation. I can’t imagine that this will not lead to criminal charges. The videos are bad. It’s clear what happened. This is very open and closed. As they say, watch the tape.

“I come from the perspective of being a parent. These young men are trusted to me by their families and our program and we have a responsibility to every player to treat them as our own and I take that responsibility very seriously. An apology will not suffice in this case. There should be grave consequences for the many guilty.”
