Two security guards were injured, one seriously, when they were beaten by members of a crowd that rushed the field after Saturday's Wisconsin-Michigan State football game, officials said.
At least one person was arrested on charges of assaulting a campus police officer and 37 people were ejected from Spartan Stadium for disorderly conduct during and after the game, which Michigan State won 36-0.Thomas Howard, 30, of Elkhart, Ind., was listed in serious but stable condition in the neurological intensive care unit of Edward W. Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, nursing supervisor Connie Powe said.
Another guard, Betty Lou Struble, 39, of Kalamazoo, was being examined Saturday night in the emergency room and probably would be released, Powe said.
Howard and Struble were among 50 Burns Security Inc. guards working with about 30 campus officers at the game, attended by 76,372 spectators, Boyd said. At least one spectator was hurt when she was struck by a goalpost being torn down by postgame revelers, but Boyd did not know the woman's identity or the extent of her injuries.
