Williams suspended indefinitely

Michigan State junior running back suspended from all team activities, currently in custody at Ingham County Jail

Michigan State’s leading returning rusher will be out indefinitely, as junior running back Delton Williams was suspended Tuesday.

“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.
