EAST LANSING, Mich. -- An assault charge against Michigan State running back Jason Teague has been dismissed.

Teague, a senior, will undergo anger management and other counseling, according to 54B District Court in East Lansing. He also will write the alleged victim a letter of apology.

Teague had been charged with misdemeanor assault and battery stemming from an October incident involving a woman. He pleaded not guilty in July and the case was dismissed this week.

Teague, who pleaded not guilty to the charge in July, remained with the Michigan State football team while the case was pending and is still with the team.

Teague gained 688 yards and scored eight touchdowns on 150 carries last season. He caught 28 passes for 219 yards and two TDs.
