Appling has been in custody since his arrest on May 24. Separately, he is charged with assault in Jackson for an incident on May 2.
The Detroit Pershing prep star played at Michigan State from 2010 to 2014. Appling also played pro basketball overseas and had two brief contracts with the NBA’s Orlando Magic.
“Sad,” said Michigan State coach Tom Izzo. “I’m thinking about him. I feel bad about him. It’s a shame what’s happened.”
