Here’s some big news regarding the Michigan tunnel incident, in which Michigan State football players were captured on camera attacking one Michigan player following the annual rivalry game.

Attorney Dave Diamond is representing one of the MSU players who was suspended. A release states that it allegedly was a Michigan football player who first “engaged with Spartan athletes with his helmet and swinging a punch.” It also says the “UM player started the altercation.”

Obviously, these are just allegations. Time will tell if these claim hold up in court. Check out the full release below via Chris Solari of the Detroit Free Press, and listen to Chris guest on “The Squad with Anne Erickson” below.
