CBS DETROIT – Michigan State running back Delton Williams, who will be a junior this season, has been indefinitely suspended from the team, head coach Mark Dantonio announced in a statement Tuesday.
Court records show Williams has been charged with brandishing a firearm in public, a misdemeanor that can result in up to 90 days in jail, a fine of up to $100.00, or both. A deputy at the Ingham County Jail in Mason confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Williams was there awaiting arraignment.
Bond has been set at $500, per court records.
Michigan State University Police had issued an alert Monday night about a road rage incident and later sent out an update that the person brandishing the gun in the vehicle had been arrested.
The police department said Tuesday afternoon that no report about the incident was available at the time because the investigation was ongoing. A voicemail requesting more information from the department’s public relations officer was not immediately returned.
As a sophomore, Williams rushed for 316 yards and five touchdowns on 54 attempts. Following the graduation of running back Jeremy Langford, Williams was expected to contend for the starting spot this season.
The arrest of Williams was first reported by isportsweb.
