Pair of Spartans arrested in Aspen

Authorities in Aspen say two Michigan State football players

were arrested after a reported disturbance at a bar.

Nineteen-year-old Max Bullough and 23-year-old Brian Linthicum

were arrested shortly after midnight Thursday morning at the Regal

Watering Hole. Staff had reported Linthicum assaulting another

patron, Benjamin Nichols of London.

The Aspen Police Department said Friday that Bullough was

charged with underage possession of alcohol and Linthicum was

charged with assault in the third degree. Both were charged with

eluding officers.

They were released soon after their arrest. They are scheduled

to appear in court in Aspen on April 19.

Michigan State did not have any immediate comment on the

arrests.
