Michigan State Football Players Involved in Rather Hall Attack?
There are reports that several Michigan State football players may have participated in a group attack on campus. Witnesses have claimed that some Michigan State football players may have gone on a rampage, wearing ski masks and punching people at the Rather Hall Lounge on the Michigan State campus.
Witnesses and students involved in the incident said a group of 15 to 20 men, who some described as MSU football players, stormed into the dormitory and hit and injured about seven students, some of them women.
According to witnesses, some of the attackers wore ski masks. Others were identified as Michigan State football players.
Thus far, MSU officials have yet to comment on the Rather Hall attack.
It appears that the Michigan State football attack may have been motivated by a fraternity dispute.
Mitchell said members of his fraternity, Iota Phi Theta, had just finished a potluck event and were folding chairs in the lounge when the men entered. The men said they were looking for a man who had been involved in a spat with one of them the night before during an Iota Phi Theta event at The Small Planet, 16800 Chandler Road, Mitchell said.
