Wendell Brown, a former Ball State linebacker, is flying home after his release from a Chinese prison Tuesday, according to social media posts from his family and friends.
Brown was imprisoned in Chongqing, China, in September 2016 after he was caught in a bar fight.
Brown was a former CFL player and also played for the Swarco Raiders. Brown was teaching football in China when he was charged with intentional assault in the fight, which he has always disputed.
Brown and his mother, Antoinette Brown, are expected to arrive at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport in Romulus early Wednesday.
This is big news because Brown was in prison for two years before receiving a sentence of four years. We was then given a year off and released. Brown is jacked and looks to be in good spirits.
