Suspended Michigan football player Grant Perry won’t be in court next week, according to a report from MLive.
Perry’s trial date was initially set for May 15 in Lansing, Mich., but the trial will no longer start Monday and no date has been set.
Stemming from an incident in East Lansing last October, Perry is facing two misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree sexual assault, a felony charge of resisting an officer and a misdemeanor charge of underage drinking.
From an obtained police report:
According to the police report, Perry attempted to flee police as he ran from Lou and Harry’s, a bar in downtown East Lansing, Mich., following an altercation with a woman who alleged that Perry groped her between her legs.
The police report said Perry and two other men cut in line to get into Lou and Harry’s at around 12:15 in the morning on Oct. 15, and the women they cut in front of began to yell at him. The police report stated that Perry became “verbally defensive” and that the victim alleged that Perry groped her.
Harry Saites, the bar owner, told police that he called 911 to report a possible assault. Officers who arrived on the scene saw a male and a female pushing each other while in line, and a woman pushed Perry out of line.
According to the police report, the responding officer grabbed Perry and asked for his identification, and Perry ran from the officer, who tackled him in a nearby alley. An officer initially had trouble securing and handcuffing Perry, and threatened to “tase” him.
Perry, who turned 20 in February, has denied the allegations of criminal sexual misconduct.
Perry was initially suspended by Michigan for two games. He then played the final four games of the regular season, but was suspended again — this time indefinitely — prior to the Orange Bowl.
