(EAST LANSING) - Michigan State freshman Miles Williams and Hugh D'Imperio were charged with felony counts of assaulting and attempting to rob a MSU student.

D'Imperio was freed on $25,000 bond, but Williams remains in custody. His bond was set at $100,000. Williams mother is attempting to raise bail for her son.

Ironically, the charges come after a season ending news conference were coach John L. Smith touted his team for having high character.

Smith apparently knew of the charges and may have been sending a message to the current roster of Spartan football players.

MSU spokesman John Lewandowski issued a terse statement from Smith saying "That kind of behavior won't be tolerated."

The alleged victim said he was accosted by a "white male and black male," who told him to "come here," according to the police report of the incident.

When the alleged victim refused, he was allegedly hit by the male perpetrator with his fist but escaped unharmed.

If convicted of the charges both players face a sentence up to 30 years in prison.
