Michigan State Spartans defensive end Auston Robertson was charged with third-degree criminal sexual assault this morning, according to Detroit 4 news.

The Meridian Township Police Department has been investigating Robertson—19 years old—since last month. The assault allegedly occurred in January.

Three other players have been suspended for an unrelated case, and a staffer has been placed on paid leave for misconduct in an investigation. They have been suspended since February.

They have been removed from housing and are not allowed to practice with the team, but as of now, they remain unnamed because they have not been charged.

We will update everyone on more details as soon as they become available.
