Michigan wide receiver Grant Perry was charged Wednesday with four counts related to an alleged sexual assault in East Lansing, Mich., in October.
The school announced that Perry has been suspended from all team activities indefinitely, until the legal process is finished. The Wolverines play Florida State in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 30.
Here is Michigan’s full statement:
“The University was made aware of the arrest of student-athlete Grant Perry earlier this fall. He was immediately suspended from all team activities at that time and missed two games. Based on the information at that time, Grant was allowed to resume team activities pending the outcome of the investigation.
“Upon being informed that charges would be filed, he was immediately and indefinitely suspended from all team activities until the legal process is completed.”
Perry, a true sophomore from Bloomfield Hills, Mich., was suspended before Michigan’s game against Illinois on Oct. 22, a 41-8 win. Court records show the incident, in which Perry is accused of touching a female, took place outside an East Lansing bar, shortly after midnight on Oct. 15.
Perry didn’t play in the next game but returned for the Wolverines’ final four contests, catching a total of seven passes for 69 yards.
