WEST CHESTER, Ohio (WOOD) — A former Western Michigan University football player charged in a Kalamazoo armed robbery has been arrested in Ohio.

Bryson White, 20, was arrested on Nov. 26 in West Chester, northwest of Cincinnati, for allegedly assaulting a female coworker at a Kohl’s store. A police report from the West Chester Police Department states “the listed suspect… put his hands around her neck and choked her.” His arraignment is scheduled for Dec. 13 in Butler County Court.

White is out on a $100,000 surety bond pending trial in Kalamazoo for armed robbery, first-degree home invasion, and larceny charges. Kalamazoo prosecutor will be investigating to determine if White violated his bond.

He and Ronald George, 18, are accused of forcing their way into an off-campus apartment in Kalamazoo and robbing a woman of marijuana and money. White allegedly was armed with a knife, George with a gun.
