ANN ARBOR, Mich. – University of Michigan police won’t seek criminal charges in an on-ice attack on a Michigan hockey player involving two Michigan State players.
Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Diane Brown said Thursday a police review determined the incident didn’t merit a criminal investigation.
But Brown says police are continuing to investigate a possible assault in the Spartans locker-room after Saturday’s game in Ann Arbor. She says results should be forwarded soon to the Washtenaw County prosecutor for possible charges.
Michigan defenceman Steve Kampfer was hit into the boards by Michigan State’s Andrew Conboy late in the Wolverines’ 5-3 win. Conboy’s teammate Corey Tropp then hit Kampfer in the neck with his stick while Kampfer was prone on the ice.
