Eastern Michigan’s Emoni Bates suspended as he faces gun charges


Ypsilanti — Eastern Michigan University basketball player Emoni James-Wayne Bates, a one-time five-star recruit, is facing gun charges after he was arrested during a traffic stop Sunday night in Washtenaw County. 

Bates, 18, faces two felony charges in Washtenaw County’s 14A-1 District Court, online court records show.

One charge is for carrying a concealed weapon. The other is for altering identification marks on a weapon or firearm. Both were requested by the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office.

Bates was suspended from “practices and playing privileges” at EMU, university Athletic Director Scott Wetherbee said in a Monday statement.

“We are aware of a situation involving men’s basketball student-athlete Emoni Bates,” the statement read. “Eastern Michigan University takes all allegations of this nature very seriously. Per department policy, he has been suspended automatically from practice and playing privileges until the legal process is resolved. Because this is an on-going legal matter, the University will have no further comment at this time.”
