Student Sues MSU

 A Michigan State University student who says he was maliciously prosecuted by East Lansing authorities is suing.
 
The Lansing State Journal reports undergraduate Justin Socha is seeking unspecified damages with the lawsuit filed last year in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids.
 
East Lansing city attorney Tom Yeadon says he doesn't want to try the case in the media.
 
The incident involving Socha happened in September 2010 the weekend of a Michigan State football game. Socha says two East Lansing police officers ordered him to sweep broken glass in the street and spread it in a parking lot. He says he later was wrongfully prosecuted.
 
Socha was charged with urinating in public, a disorderly conduct charge, but eventually was found not guilty by a jury.
