Michigan State RB Delton Williams suspended after gun charge
Wednesday March 18th, 2015

Michigan State suspended running back Delton Williams indefinitely from team-related activities after he was arrested on a gun charge, reports the Lansing State Journal.

The 21-year-old Williams was charged with brandishing a firearm in public after being involved in an incident Monday night on the Michigan State campus.

Williams faces up to 90 days in jail and a $100 fine on the misdemeanor charge. His bond was set at $500.

According to the Michigan State University police department, Williams was driving when he cut in front of another driver. Williams “displayed a weapon,” for which he has a concealed weapons permit, at the other driver but did not point it at the driver.

University spokesman Jason Cody told that any student who violates the school’s policy on carrying weapons on school grounds could face suspension or expulsion, among other penalties. 

“Students are not allowed to have firearms on campus, either on their body or in their residence hall... and employees can't either," Cody said.

Williams had 54 carries for 316 yards and five touchdowns as a sophomore last season and was expected to compete for the starting running back position during the fall.
