Michigan State defensive back Khary Crump has accepted a plea deal after facing serious criminal charges following a fight that broke out in the tunnel following the Spartans’ 29-7 loss to Michigan on October 29 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Crump was initially charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon, but elected to plead guilty to the counts of assault/battery and disorderly conduct, pushing people, both of which are misdemeanors. He will appear in district court via Zoom on January 5 to accept the plea.
Once Crump completes his probation under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, he will have a clean criminal record.

Spartans cornerback Khary Crump has accepted a plea deal and provided Gemon Green with a written apology
Mike Nichols, Crump’s attorney, said discussions have been held with Michigan defensive back Gemon Green regarding the plea deal.
The video captured Crump swinging his helmet at Green during the fight in the tunnel.
As part of the deal, Crump also had to provide Green with a written apology.
“It’s a milestone,” Crump said in a statement to the Detroit Free Press. “Writing an apology to Gemon was a milestone.
“I take it step by step. I work on KJ the man, KJ the student and KJ the athlete. All I can say is stay tuned.
Each misdemeanor charge carries a $500 fine. Crump, 21, also faces up to 93 days in jail, but Nichols doesn’t think his client will face jail time.
In addition to legal action, Crump will still have to sit out the first eight games of the 2023 season under a suspension issued by the Big Ten.
