Two University of Michigan wrestlers suspended from team, facing felony explosive charges

ANN ARBOR (WXYZ) - The University of Michigan has placed two wrestlers on an indefinite suspension after it was revealed that the athletes are facing felonies in connection with Molotov cocktails.

A Molotov cocktail typically consists of a bottle filled with some sort of flammable liquid and a means to ignite it.

A mattress was set on fire along White Street after the Michigan Men's Basketball team lost to Louisville in April's national title game.

Now, wrestlers Justin Dozier and Rosario Bruno are each charged with Possession/Manufacturing Explosives.

Both student-athletes are 20 years old.

It's unclear if any money had to be posted for their release pending trial or if they were released on personal bonds.
