Former Michigan State star Appling charged in new case
DETROIT (AP) Former Michigan State basketball player Keith Appling has been charged with another weapons violation and other crimes.
Appling was arraigned Tuesday in Detroit on charges including carrying a concealed weapon and fleeing and eluding.
Prosecutors say police stopped Appling Sunday for a suspected traffic violation. Investigators say he offered identification but drove off while an officer had his hand in the window.
It's Appling's third encounter with Detroit-area police since spring. Gun charges are pending in two separate cases in Dearborn and Detroit. A bond motion on the other cases is scheduled for Wednesday.
Prosecutors say Appling's attorney will be Otis Culpepper. The Associated Press called Culpepper but didn't get an answer.
Appling played for Michigan State from 2010-2014 and had two contracts with the Orlando Magic last season.
