Ex-Wildcat Khary Crump charged with felony assault following Michigan-Michigan State brawl
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Seven Michigan State football players are charged in the postgame melee in Michigan Stadium’s tunnel last month, according to a statement Wednesday from the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office.
The most serious charge is against former Arizona Wildcats cornerback Khary Crump, who faces a felony count of felonious assault. The charges against the six others are misdemeanors. Linebacker Itayvion “Tank” Brown, safety Angelo Grose, cornerback Justin White, defensive end Brandon Wright and defensive end Zion Young are each charged with one count of aggravated assault, and linebacker Jacoby Windmon faces one count of assault and battery.
No. 3 Michigan plays rival No. 2 Ohio State on the road Saturday a few hours before the Spartans close out their regular-season at No. 11 Penn State, and needing a win to become bowl eligible.
Scuffles broke out in the Michigan Stadium tunnel on Oct. 29 after the then-No. 4 Wolverines beat the Spartans 29-7. Social media posts showed Michigan State players pushing, punching and kicking Michigan’s Ja’Den McBurrows in and near a hallway that doesn’t lead to either locker room. Brown, Grose and Young are seen on video getting physical with McBurrows.

McBurrows and defensive back Gemon Green went up the tunnel, walking alongside the Spartans, after the game while much of Michigan’s team was waving them off the field after beating their in-state rivals for the first time in three years.
Green, in another post, is surrounded by police while shouting across the tunnel at Michigan State players.
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has said one of the players, who he did not identify, might have had a broken nose. He also said Green was punched by a Spartans player and McBurrows was attacked when he tried to help.
Harbaugh has said he expected the suspended Spartans to be criminally charged.
The statement from the prosecutor’s office provided no detail on the allegations, including who is accused of hitting whom. The statement also doesn’t list potential prison sentences for each charge. It adds that the office will have no further comment as the case proceeds.
Crump, a native of Culver City, California, spent the 2020 season with the Wildcats. He transferred to Michigan State in May 2021.
