LANSING, Mich., Sept. 20 (UPI) -- A Michigan State University student who alleged he was assaulted by several athletes is facing charges, including filing a false police report, officials said.

Brandon Carmack, 20, of Saline, claimed he was the victim of a violent attack last month. He was arraigned Wednesday for filing a false police report, the Lansing (Mich.) State Journal reported.

"There's no evidence whatsoever that he was the victim of a crime," Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III said.

Carmack has also been charged with stalking and domestic assault and battery involving a woman he had dated, and other two counts of assault and battery he faces involved two other people.

No one has been charged for the alleged Aug. 28 attack on Carmack. At that time, Carmack told reporters he was assaulted by as many as 12 university athletes and that he suffered stab wounds and broken bones.

Carmack's attorney, Kristina Lyke, declined to comment.
