Charges Expected Following East Lansing Fires after Friday's Game
Police will be seeking criminal charges against those who set fires to furniture after Friday night's NCAA basketball game. East Lansing police say they have identified 4 suspects and will present their evidence to the city attorney's office Wednesday for review. They say the East Lansing Fire Department responded to 12 fires that were intentionally set after the MSU vs Duke game Friday night. Most of the furniture fires were started in the roadway.
“Charges in cases like this will result in a criminal conviction. People need to understand they are jeopardizing their careers by engaging in this type of behavior,” said East Lansing City Attorney Tom Yeadon in a written statement to the media.
