Michigan cornerback Nate Johnson was arrested on the campus of the University of Michigan early in the morning on Saturday, Sept. 29 for an alleged assault on a female student, according to MLive.

Diane Brown, a spokesperson for the University of Michigan Division of Public Safety and Security, told MLive details are not immediately clear on the incident, but the female was found in a dorm room on Michigan’s campus.

Johnson was later released on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond, according to The Detroit News. He has a pre-trial date set for next Wednesday, Oct. 11. He was charged with one count of domestic assault.

Head Coach Jim Harbaugh did not say anything about this matter, nor did any reporter ask him about it, at his weekly Monday press conference.

Johnson was indefinitely suspended from all football activities last Saturday afternoon.

Johnson is a redshirt freshman who converted from wide receiver to cornerback this past summer camp. He has not played a game yet this season.
