Michigan wide receiver Grant Perry has been arraigned on charges of two counts of misdemeanor fourth-degree sexual assault, one felony count of assaulting, battering or resisting or obstructing an officer and one count of underage drinking, the Lansing State Journal has reported.
In East Lansing over the Wolverines’ bye week, Perry allegedly touched a female while waiting outside a bar in the early hours of Oct. 15, and then fled the scene as officers attempted to apprehend him.
“When (police) arrived on scene, we tried to grab onto him, and we had to chase him,” East Lansing P.D. spokesman Lt. Scott Wriggelsworth told the paper. “In the midst of that fracas, one of our officers suffered a minor hand injury.”
Perry turned himself in on Wednesday and was released on bond. In the meantime, he has been suspended from all team activities.
Perry, a sophomore, has played in 23 career games with 27 receptions for 311 yards and two touchdowns.
Michigan is set to meet Florida State in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 30 (8 p.m. ET, ESPN).
