Travis Walton denies MSU assault allegations from 2010

Former Michigan State basketball player and student assistant coach Travis Walton issued a statement Tuesday denying reports from 2010 that he had sexually assaulted a woman in April and that just a few months earlier he had punched a woman in a bar.

In Friday's Outside the Lines story about sexual violence issues surrounding the football and basketball teams at Michigan State, it was revealed that Walton, who was working as a student assistant coach in 2010, had been accused along with two players of raping a female student that April.

When Outside the Lines reached him by phone earlier this month to ask about the report, he said he wasn't familiar with it.
