Here's the latest in the post game brew-ha-ha in East Lansing following the Spartan Football victory in the Big Ten Championship.
At least 15 people have been arrested in connection with at least 57 fires set mostly in one neighborhood apartment complex just off campus.
Police are offering up to $20,000 for tips that lead to convictions in the arrests. On line video shows thousands of partiers joining in the furniture bonfires.
There has been no comment from Head Football Coach, Mark Dantonio, although, head baskeball coach Tom Izzo says he is disgusted and disappointed by what happened.
Robert Cameron Redus was 23 years old and set to graduate with honors this coming May from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas. That is, until he was shot to death by a campus security officer late last week.
The story goes that the security officer spotted a vehicle driven by Redus speeding and driving erratically. He followed the car to a parking lot at an off campus apartment complex in Alamo Heights. Key word there being off campus where the security officer had no juristiction. He then said he radioed local police for assistance. At some point after that a scuffle ensued between the officer and Redus. The student was able to obtain the officer's night stick from his belt and began to hit him with it. That's when the security officer drew his gun and shot Robert Cameron Redus 3 times, killing him.
The security officer, Corporal Chris Carter is on administrative leave with pay pending investigation of the incident.
Fellow students who knew Redus were shocked to hear of his death. They said he was sweet, friendly, respectful and didn't seem like the kind who would be violent. Investigators say the case will be complicated as the officer's cruiser did not have working dashboard video camera to record the event. With Redus dead, it will only be the officers word and whatever evidence forensics can discover.
The question sounds like part of an opening monologue on the Leno, Letterman or Conan show...So how cold did it get on the frozen tundra of Lambeau field last Sunday?
It was soooooo cold...9 degrees to be exact that the beer travelling through the hoses from the kegs to the taps froze and couldn't be poured. One fan described it as "a beer slushy" coming out of the tap. Now, they say it's been colder than 9 degrees at Lambeau, so why did the beer freeze just this past weekend and not other times? Hopefully, they're not watering it down, but whatever the reason, they better get it fixed or the cheeseheads may just start a riot!
