Michigan Wolverines football player Mike Milano has been indefinitely suspended after being investigated for an alleged assault on a Wolverines hockey player during the weekend.

The university's department of public safety is investigating an alleged aggravated assault on Michigan hockey player Steve Kampfer that took place at approximately 2:25 a.m. Sunday in Ann Arbor. The incident report states that the victim was taken to University Hospital.

Police identified the alleged attacker as a 22-year-old male from Ohio. Milano, 22, hails from Rocky River, Ohio. A 5-foot-7, 193-pound walk-on running back who spent two years on Michigan's wrestling team, Milano appeared in two games last season but has yet to play this year.

Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez and the athletic department will not comment while the investigation is ongoing.

Kampfer is a defenseman for the hockey team and a fourth-round draft pick of the Anaheim Ducks.

"I can't tell you that [Kampfer] did anything bad," Michigan hockey coach Red Berenson told The Michigan Daily. "He just was a victim."
