Officially, a criminal investigation into the Michigan State altercation is ongoing, according to Penn State police chief Tyrone Parham.
This isn't new. This was reported from the minute the story broke.
Bully for them. Now that they don't have to worry about kids being sodomized in the showers of athletic facilities, they have time to investigate real crime.
Thank you, Denicos.
Was this before or after we beat Penn State?
Happy Valley has a rich history of approaching investigations with the utmost in fairness, void of any preference to the effect it will have on The Pennsylvania State University.
This sounds completely unmotivated by the fact it is involving a rival university at State College. Stay classy Pedo State.
Hopefully one of them uses the new Notre Dame standard where they can just say "I am the victim and I'm choosing not to press charges".
Wait, there are police in Happy Valley?

To be fair and honest.... if this had NOT been MSU basketball players, but just a couple of twenty year old kids fighting in a hotel lobby and putting a hole in the wall, the arrest would have been swift and no investigation would have been needed. I'm sure Payne and Dawson are contrite about their behavior. But to the appologists on the board - had it been you, you'd not have been leaving the hotel lobby without an escort in a black and white car...
Spartans ...committed to bring Paul Bunyan home in 2013.
Sounds like Leung called back the police chief to see if the investigation had been closed.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
It was on private property. Wouldn't that be up to either the hotel or the parties involved to press charges?
Yeah I am pretty sure you would be leaving on your own. Neither player would press charges, and they would just pay for the damages. It isn't like they destroyed a bunch of stuff, it is a hole in a wall, those are pretty cheap to fix. It isn't like it is thousands of dollars worth of property damage.
What would they arrest them for and charge them with? Do you really think they would keep them in jail?
Wait, so now the players got special treatment??
God I love this place.
I've been involved in an altercation like this at a hotel in Lansing. Entirely not true.
No you haven't
Was your uncle involved?
You have got to be S^*#ing me.
Payne or Dawson will probably be hauled in on unrelated terrorism charges after they go thru every cellphone call and social media post they ever made. /sarcasm
The indoctrinated will no longer be able to deny it, only defend it.
Update: Apparently, the wall is pressing charges. Dawson should probably lawyer up.

I think we need to make some threatening phone calls to this wall... IF it actualy exists... I am sceptical after recent events.
They can't fix the wall without consulting with a Painter.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
Boy the PSU Police act swiftly on major things like this, I guess JS molesting little boys didn't warrant an investigation. Guess it was just normal day to day events in Happy Valley.
+1 This made me LOL. With all the stuff going on I wonder how the Purdue Boards are reacting to Dawson getting into a scuffle with a team mate.
Only if the cops got there first and broke it up and decided it was bad enough to press charges, or the owners wanted to press charges for damages, or one of the two parties wanted to press assault charges.
If the fight was broken up right away, like this was, and was under control and squashed, it would never make light of day, or at worst, both parties would jet before police arrived.
Not lying. The Radisson downtown. Got drunk. Had a "brawl" with a friend. We broke a TV and a mirror and cops were called. Neither of us were arrested or fined. We agreed to pay for the damages and leave with a sober friend. We then snuck back in and slept on the floor of another room.
Dood, two guys got into a scuffle, a couple of punches were thrown, a wall got jacked. If they were "normal" people, they would have bolted to the nearest exit before anyone caught them and the janitor would have found the damage, looked at it, then shook his head and called in the maintenance crew when he made his rounds later in the day.
Don't post poop!
Call in The Mentalist! Technically if damage above say $200 was intentionally done it might be a crime, otherwise it is a minor offense, as was the fight. The negligent damage to the wall is a civil matter that the police should not get involved in. Plus you can patch a hole in a wall for $20.
