A member of the military who didn't have a ticket to the University of Michigan-Michigan State game was able to make his way onto the field undetected armed with two rifles, campus police confirmed this afternoon.
But U-M police spokeswoman Diane Brown said the weapons did not have ammunition and were checked before he entered the stadium. She said no one was in danger at any point.
"It was very unfortunate that this man abused his uniform and his position to gain access to the stadium unauthorized," Brown said this afternoon. "It's very disappointing."
The 42-year-old man's name has not been released, and it's unclear where he is stationed or what discipline he could face from the military. Brown said he is in the National Guard and is based in Southeast Michigan.
While the news blurb was a bit of sensationalism, this is still a bit bothersome.
