OKEMOS, Mich. (AP) Police say former Michigan State defensive end Auston Robertson is in custody after being charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
The Meridian Township Police Department updated a message on its website Sunday to say the 19-year-old was in custody. No additional information was provided.
Robertson is accused of forcing a woman to have sex with him at her apartment on April 8. Shortly after prosecutors announced the charge on Friday, Michigan State said Robertson had been dismissed from the football team.
