Michigan running back Fitzgerald Toussaint was arrested Saturday night for allegedly driving under the influence.
Sources have confirmed to Action News that Toussaint was arrested just before midnight on Saturday in downtown Ann Arbor after failing a roadside breathalyzer test following a stop for an unspecified traffic violation.
Michigan head coach Brady Hoke released the following statement: ”Fitz made a poor decision and has been suspended indefinitely because of that action. There are expectations that come with being a football student-athlete at the University of Michigan and those responsibilities were not met in this instance. We will use this as an opportunity to educate Fitz and make sure he understands the high standards that we have established within our program.” (WXYZ)
