False alert sent out says Nassar was released from custody
Nassar, a former MSU employee, is being held without bail after being accused of sexual assault and the possession of child pornography.
VINE notified users that Nassar "has been released from custody as of 2/23/2017." The message was likely intended to tell users that Nassar was transferred from Ingham County Jail back into federal custody, Michigan Attorney General's Office Director of Communications Andrea Bitely said.
"He's not out walking the streets," Bitely said.
