Police investigate post-game ‘assault’ involving MSU and UM players

Ann Arbor – Police have launched an investigation into a nasty post-game brawl in the Michigan Stadium tunnel following Michigan wins 29-7 over rival Michigan State late Saturday night.

Tempers flared on the pitch as the final seconds ticked away, but cooler heads seemed to prevail – down to the tunnel, where several reporters heading for post-match press conferences captured video of what appeared to be about 10 Michigan State players surrounding a Michigan player, with several Spartans kicking and punching.

That Michigan player appeared to be defensive back Ja’Den McBurrows, who was down in the middle of several Michigan State players. When the player who appeared to be McBurrows got up, Michigan State linebacker Itayvion Brown grabbed him and threw him through an open door at the end of the tunnel. A Michigan State Police officer grabbed Brown’s jersey to restrain him.

At least two other Michigan State players, safety Angelo Grose and defensive end Zion Young, were seen by a Detroit News reporter throwing punches at the player who appeared to be McBurrows.
