Michigan WR Grant Perry Arraigned On 4 Charges, Including Sexual Assault

Grant Perry, a sophomore wide receiver for the Michigan Wolverines, was arraigned Wednesday on four charges, including sexual assault, stemming from an October incident.

The charges were made in East Lansing, where Perry allegedly went out during the weekend that Michigan football was on bye. From the Lansing State Journal's report on the arraignment.

Grant Perry, a sophomore wide receiver from Royal Oak, was arraigned in East Lansing District Court on one felony count of assaulting, battering, resisting or obstructing an officer, two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual assault and an underage drinking charge.

He is accused of touching a female who was waiting in line outside a downtown East Lansing bar at 12:20 a.m. Oct. 15.

"When (police) arrived on scene, we tried to grab onto him, and we had to chase him," said Lt. Scott Wriggelsworth, a spokesman for the East Lansing Police Department. "In the midst of that fracas, one of our officers suffered a minor hand injury."

Perry served a suspension the following week against Illinois for unspecified "disciplinary reasons," and did not play the following two games against Michigan State or Maryland, but saw time in the Wolverines' final three games of the season.

Michigan announced that he has been suspended again in light of the charges filed.

Michigan faces Florida State on December 30 in the Orange Bowl.
