A new 'Outside The Lines' report was released Friday by ESPN, this time outlining new charges against a MSU basketball player.

They site that 19-year-old Brock Washington has been charged by prosecutors in Ingham County with a misdemeanor assault.

They list the charge as an "assault or assault and battery" reported by the Michigan State Police and charged on March 8, 2018.

According to ESPN, Washington is the "lone suspect in an alleged assault that Michigan State campus police last fall classified as fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct." This assault allegedly happened on August 29, 2017 at 3 a.m. in a university residence hall.

ESPN says that a female student reported two days later to campus police that she was groped by Washington.
