WLNS Web Staff - EAST LANSING, MI (WLNS) - A 19-year-old MSU student has been arraigned following the Sweet 16 celebration after the Spartans beat Oklahoma.

Dylan Bonell, from Plymouth was arraigned Tuesday for his involvement in the disturbance that took place in the 100 block of Waters Edge on Saturday, March 28.

Bonell is facing two misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges and one minor in possession of alcohol charge. The disorderly conduct charges include remaining within 300 feet of a fire and hindering, assaulting or obstructing a police officer.

Bonell was released on a $500 personal recognizance bond with some conditions. Those include not drinking alcohol or doing drugs, taking a breathalyzer test daily between 7 - 9 a.m. and a curfew from 10 p.m. - 7 a.m. He also cannot be found within 2,500 feet of a civil disturbance.
