A former NMU student and football player was arrested Sunday after an altercation led to a police officer being injured.


Derek Hall, assistant vice president of university marketing and communications, said Andrew Novak engaged with a police officer and as a result, the officer was injured in the pursuit.


Novak, 19, was arraigned Monday on one charge of assault and one charge of trespassing, according to the Marquette County District Court.

At the time of the arrest, Novak was no longer an NMU student and had a no trespass citation against him, Hall said.
