Posted: Updated:

A former Central Michigan University football player has been arraigned in connection with an abduction attempt.

Brandon Greer, 21, is accused of trying to grab a woman who was out walking her dog.

Greer, a defensive back at CMU until Friday morning, is accused of driving up next to the woman at around 8:40 p.m. on Wednesday near Crapo and Preston in Mt. Pleasant and grabbing her arm.

"After a thorough review of the situation, we have dismissed Brandon Greer from the football team and our athletic program. We take all criminal misconduct very seriously and felt this case warranted immediate dismissal from our program," said CMU Director of Athletics Dave Heeke.

The woman was able to break away and got to safety.

Greer is a resident of Illinois. He has been charged with one count of criminal sexual conduct-assault with intent to commit sexual penetration. One count of attempted unlawful imprisonment and one count of assault. 

Bond has been set at $750,000 cash/surety bond. He's currently lodged at the Isabella County Sheriff's Department.

Central Michigan Athletics announced Friday morning that Greer had been dismissed from the program.
