MSU Speaks Out Following Game Night Disturbances

Posted: Updated:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Michigan State University is speaking out after the disturbances following Saturday night's game.

"Unfortunately that small number gives the rest of us a bad name--and we're not going to tolerate that. It's just not right to have destruction of personal property and endangering lives of others," said Kent Cassella, the university spokesperson. He says the students involved may be expelled, in addition to criminal charges.

Despite the school's history of destructive behavior following major sporting events, this was the first to occur during football season.

City Manager George Lahanas said the extent of the situation caught police off guard. "It's probably not expected. You really have to try to make decisions and resources on what do you think's going to occur, what's the likelihood of something occuring."
