    Sterling Heights freshman Marcell Addris Dubose, listed as living at Saxe Hall Room 309, is free on a $3,000 bond pending formal pending arraignment in Isabella County Circuit Court.

    Dubose was a walk-on for the football team heading into training camp on Aug. 1, but quit on Aug. 5, according to Assistant Sports Information Director Scott Rex.

    He was also high school wrestling standout who was a member of the 2008 CMU wrestling team signing class.

    Dubose is also facing trial in January on unrelated charges of possession of stolen property in connection with a laptop stolen from Emmons Hall in September, according to CMU Police.

    Dubose pleaded not guilty on Dec. 5 in Isabella County Circuit Court on the stolen property charges, and is scheduled for a pre-trial conference on Jan. 12.

    According to a release from the Isabella County Prosecutor's Office, the assault charge stems from the most severely injured person at the Delta Chi house.

    The complainant is listed in court records as Joshua Blind, a Harrison Township junior. The penalty for aggravated assault is up to one year in jail, and a fine of up to $1,000.

    Police interviewed more than four-dozen witnesses and filed a 110-page report to the Isabella County Prosecutor's Office, which led to Dubose's arrest after the Oct. 12 porch fight, which broke out at the Delta Chi fraternity house, 1007 S. Main St.

    "We have repeatedly seen this type of conduct get so out of control that individuals have been seriously hurt or even killed," Isabella County Prosecutor Larry Burdick said in the press release.

    "Alcohol, bravado and stupidity are a dangerous combination," Burdick stated. "In this case, several individuals failed to act appropriately, and we are fortunate that the injuries sustained were not more severe."

    Sounds like a kid who could have benefitted from staying on the wrestling and footballs teams if the allegations are true. Its too bad if that is the case.

    It's unfortunate because he had so much upside, and because people would bash him on Michigan forums as a thug and a dumb jock. I was really hoping he would prove people wrong and do really well at CMU.

    Then again, the wrestlers & football players have their fair share of drunken party incidents. He's young, I'm sure he'll learn from it and move on. Hope to see him back on the mat sooner rather than later...

    I don't want to name this kid but he was the BEST football player I ever coached -he went to a big 10 school and was a projected starter as a freshman -he got busted selling weed and kicked out of school-he's been in and out of prison his whole life -some of these kids can't ever leave their hoods at home and move on -I hope Marcel learns from this but what he's probably going to learn is the only people he can trust are his homeboys .

    Oh my gosh, this is ridiculous. Think about it; when in the news did you hear about Marcel getting in fights and stealing things before this? Or is just because he was not caught in the act? No, he definitely was provoked and probably called obscene things trying to put the new top notch freshmen down. I feel bad for him.... once that happened it must have taken off. He will be back. He will pull through and be better.
    Really though, is that just an unrelated fact?

    And, whats funny, is that so many guys fought, but he was caught and had a sufficient amount of evidence against him to he charged.
