Ex-Western Michigan Football Players In Court On Armed Robbery Charges

KALAMAZOO (AP) — Two Western Michigan football players who were kicked off the team after their arrest have appeared in court on armed robbery charges.

Bond was set Monday at $100,000 each for freshmen Ron George of Pittsburgh and Bryson White of Mason, Ohio.

They’re accused of using a gun and knife to rob a woman at her Kalamazoo apartment Friday night. They’re charged with armed robbery, first-degree home invasion and larceny in a building.

George, a linebacker, asked for a court-appointed lawyer. White, a wide receiver, said he has an attorney, but he appeared by video from jail without one.

Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck removed them from the team Sunday, saying “we are moving forward.”
