Now this is some disturbing footage right here. Ann Arbor police released a video on Tuesday that shows Michigan wide receiver Csont’e York punching a 23-year-old man outside of a bar in Ann Arbor back in July.
York was suspended indefinitely by Michigan head coach Brady Hoke, who released this statement when the suspension was announced (via Mlive.com).
Csont’e York is suspended indefinitely for failing to meet team standards and will not report for fall camp,” Hoke wrote in a statement at the time. “We demand that every person in our program represent the University of Michigan and the Michigan football program the right way on and off the field. When people fall short of that, there are consequences.
At that point, there was no indication one way or another why York was suspended. The release of this video pretty much clears up any questions regarding York’s suspension.
York admitted to punching the man in an interview with the police. He will be charged later this month with a count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery.
York, a 6″3″ and 185-pound wide receiver, ranked 75th nationally among wide receiver recruits by Rivals.com back in 2013. It remains to be seen whether he will be dismissed from Michigan’s football team.
