After a brief respite, the issue surrounding college football players and the wrong side of the law has surfaced once again.
According to the Detroit Free Press, senior tight end Brian Linthicum and sophomore linebacker Max Bullough were arrested early Thursday morning following an incident at an Aspen, Colo., bar. The former was charged misdemeanor third-degree assault and the latter minor in possession of alcohol, while both players were hit with a charge of eluding police.
No details of what led to the arrest and charges were released, and the players have a hearing scheduled for April 19. Students at Michigan State are currently on spring break.
MSU officials were not available for comment.
Linthicum, who had 18 receptions for 230 yards last season, and Bullough are favored to earn starting jobs at their respective positions.
