Michigan's Perry reinstated to football team

Perry was sentenced to 12 months probation earlier this month after pleading guilty to one charge of resisting a police officer and one charge of assault and battery.

MI junior wide receiver Grant Perry has officially been welcomed back to the football program. The status update comes after Christopher Haxel of the Lansing State Journal noted in June that Perry accepted a plea agreement to drop a misdemeanor charge of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct against him.

Perry was suspended for two regular season games right after the incident occurred, and the Orange Bowl against Florida State after charges were made in December.

Athletic director Warde Manuel said in a statement Friday that the university and athletic department have closely followed Perry's legal situation and he "has met every institutional expectation".

Manuel said "an athletic department and institutional review" determined Perry should be allowed to return to the football team.

MI has reinstated wide receiver Grant Perry a week after he was sentenced to probation in connection with an October 2016 incident outside a bar. Perry was also suspended throughout the spring and missed the team's trip to Rome. Manuel said Perry must abide by the terms of his probation as well as "additional internal requirements" in order to remain a part of the football team moving forward.

Perry was accused of grabbing a woman in a sexual manner outside a bar after a disagreement on October 15. According to a police report, Perry attempted to flee police as he ran from a bar in downtown East Lansing following an altercation with a woman who alleged Perry groped her between her legs. He then was arrested.

Perry is not allowed to consume alcohol during his probation and must stay away from establishments that sell alcohol. MI released a statement today on the university's investigation into the matter. He also is required to serve 60 hours of community service.
