Michigan State's Max Bullough, Brian Linthicum Sentenced For Spring Break Arrest

Two Michigan State football players have been sentenced for their roles in a fight at an Aspen, Colo. bar during the school's spring break in mid-March.

Senior tight end Brian Linthicum was sentenced to one year of probation, anger management classes and 40 hours of community service. He must also pay court costs and a $100 fine, as per the terms of a plea agreement he accepted. Linthicum, who did not appear at the hearing, was originally charged with misdemeanor third-degree assault and eluding police. With the plea agreement, those charges have been reduced to misdemeanor harassment.

Linthicum, 23, isn't yet done with Pitkin County Court, however. He faces a hearing on June 14 to rule on whether or not restitution must be paid to the man police say he punched during the bar fight.

Sophomore linebacker Max Bullough also accepted a plea agreement and was sentenced to nine months probation on a minor in possession of alcohol charge. As a result, a charge of eluding police was dropped. If he meets the terms of his probation, the conviction will be expunged from his record. Bullough,19, must also attend three alcohol awareness classes and a Mothers Against Drunk Driving impact panel.

Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio withheld both players from the first two practices of spring football practices. The Detroit Free Press reports that Bullough has since been taking snaps with the Spartans' first-team defense.
