Weapons Charges Appling

Former Michigan State star Appling arrested in Detroit

DETROIT (AP) — Former Michigan State basketball player Keith Appling is in trouble again with police.

Detroit police say Appling was arrested Sunday night after he drove away from a traffic stop. Sgt. Mike Woody says a gun was found in a bag on the side of the road.

It's Appling's third encounter with Detroit-area police since spring. Gun charges are pending in two separate cases in Dearborn and Detroit.

Defense attorney Cyril Hall says Appling pulled away from police to get to a "safe" spot to deal with officers.
