“Delton Williams has been suspended indefinitely from all team-related activities,” coach Mark Dantonio said in a statement.
Williams was brought into custody at Ingham County Jail in Mason at 11:50 p.m. Monday. On Tuesday, Williams was charged with brandishing a firearm in public, a misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days imprisonment and $100 fine, according to court records.
Williams remained in police custody at the time of charges being filed.
According to a report from isportsweb.com, Williams was taken into custody Tuesday after displaying a gun from a “blue or black Impala” on Shaw/Farm in a “road rage incident.”
A warning of the incident was issued by Michigan State University Police Department.
Williams previously was charged in June 2012 as a high school student at Erie (Pa.) Cathedral Prep with a simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. The charge was later dropped.
Williams ran for 316 yards and five touchdowns on 54 attempts as a sophomore.
