Original story follows...

Michigan football wide receiver Grant Perry was arraigned in East Lansing District Court on Wednesday on four charges stemming from a sexual assault incident that took place back in October, according to the Lansing State Journal.

The sophomore wideout was charged on one felony count of assaulting, battering, resisting or obstructing an officer, two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual assault and an underage drinking charge.

Perry allegedly touched a female outside of a bar in East Lansing sometime after midnight on Oct. 15. Michigan was one a bye that weekend.

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

Perry was suspended for the following week’s game vs. Illinois for an undisclosed reason and did not make the trip to East Lansing the following week for the game at Michigan State.

Now that he has been charged, it remains to be seen what the Wolverines do from here in terms of discipline.

We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
