Attorney David Diamond out of Los Angeles, representing an MSU player over the recent MSU Tunnel Assault that occurred October 29th following the Michigan/Michigan State rivalry game, has released a statement. The statement alleges that an “investigation yields that a Michigan football player engaged with Spartan athletes with his helmet and swinging a punch.”
And “the media has taken the bait from a coach and master victim and his howls at the moon.”. The statement then brings up Juwan Howard and “Devon Bush” as examples of hypocrisy from the school due to the lack of criminal charges for their improprieties. Howard, with the incident where he slapped Wisconsin coach Greg Gard on February 20, 2022, and Devin Bush with the vandalism of the Michigan State logo in 2018.

“The Media has taken the bait from a coach and master victim and his howls at the moon. We have learned that the UM player started the altercation. Eyewitnesses have described it as charging with his helmet and throwing a punch,”Statement from attorney David Diamond
The statement continues,
“the justice system is designed for impartiality. The repeated “Hail to the Victims: song and dance does not contribute to the fact-finding mission. Where were the screams from Ann Arbor to criminally charge Coach Howard with assault or Devon Bush with felony vandalism. The Silence was palpitating. The hypocrisy is painful. While we acknowledge wrongdoing by all parties, this is not an incident that warrants criminal charges being filed. We have seen similar behavior and even worse on the gridiron and suddenly because it happens in a tunnel, known for incompetent security and poor post-game management, there are calls for criminal charges. My client is a young man who responded to the situation before him.”Statement from attorney David Diamond
