Reinstatement Hearings Held for Ex-MSU Linebacker
BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — Former Montana State University linebacker Robert Trammell will be allowed to continue his studies, but it's not clear whether he'll return to the football team after being kicked off for a bar fight.
Trammell's attorney, Lucas Foust, said Trammell appeared at a student advisory council meeting on Tuesday. Foust declined to speak further about the proceedings.
Foust tells the Bozeman Daily Chronicle (http://bit.ly/HtH6Zb ) that a hearing with Athletic Director Peter Fields, coach Rob Ash and others also has been held. MSU officials have not yet issued a statement on their decision on whether to reinstate Trammell.
In February, Trammell was charged with misdemeanor assault after a bar fight that also involved basketball player Xavier Blount.
Blount suffered a season-ended injury to his shoulder.
Trammell has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
