UM Football Player Grant Perry Charged With Sexual Assault In East Lansing

Posted by


A University of Michigan football player was arraigned Wednesday on four charges related to a sexual assault that officials say took place in East Lansing in October.

Grant Perry, a sophomore wide receiver from Royal Oak, was arraigned in East Lansing in 54B District Court on one felony count of assaulting, battering, resisting or obstructing an officer, two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct and an underage drinking charge.

He is accused of inappropriately touching a female who was waiting in line outside a downtown East Lansing bar at 12:20 a.m. Oct. 15.

His attorney did not respond to a request for comment.

“When (police) arrived on scene, we tried to grab onto him, and we had to chase him,” said Lt. Scott Wriggelsworth, a spokesman for the East Lansing Police Department. “In the midst of that fracas, one of our officers suffered a minor hand injury.”

Michigan did not have a football game the weekend of the incident. Perry was suspended for the team’s game the following week in Ann Arbor, for what head coach Jim Harbaugh then described as “disciplinary reasons.”
