Tyus to stand trial in February

CMU football player Anthony Tyus was in court Wednesday for his final pre-trial settlement conference.

Tyus did not enter in a plea and will stand trial Feb. 17, 2004, said Isabella County Assistant Prosecutor Mark Duthie.

Tyus was arrested on charges of disturbing the peace and police officer assault, resisting arrest or obstructing justice for his alleged involvement in fights that took place at a Homecoming dance at the Student Activity Center Oct. 11 and 12 — during Homecoming Weekend.

If Tyus were to decide to enter a plea of guilty as charged, there is court time reserved for an earlier trial date of Jan. 23, Duthie said.

Duthie said plea bargain settlement proposals were discussed during Wednesdays conference with Tyus’ lawyer Charles Ford of the Lansing-based Abood Law Firm.

He said he would not divulge any details of possible plea bargains surrounding Tyus’ case.
