University of Michigan police have closed their investigation into threats from the Twitter account of a former Wolverines football player against Jim Harbaugh last month, deputy chief Melissa Overton tells MLive’s Aaron McMann.
The announcement comes a month after Tweets from the account of former Michigan football player Elysee Mbem-Bosse included what appeared to be threats to Harbaugh. UMPD opened an investigation into the case, and Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel said “everybody who needs to be working on it is.”
The tweets, which were never confirmed to have been sent by Mbem-Bosse, referenced guns and a previously unreported suspension. Michigan released a statement last month saying Mbem-Bosse left the program, but did not specify whether he was suspended or left voluntarily.
University police did not publicly name a suspect in the case. Overton told MLive:
“No charges were filed and no arrests were made.”
