Michigan RB Fitzgerald Toussaint Arrested for DUI; Suspended Indefinitely

Toussaint is obviously just preparing for the NFL.

Starting a little early that’s all, will probably get drafted by the Lions.

Michigan running back Fitzgerald Toussainthas been suspended indefinitely from the team after being arrested Saturday evening on a DUI charge.

Toussaint, a redshirt junior, ran for 1,041 yards and nine touchdowns on 187 carries as Michigan’s starting running back in 2011. The total was second on the team behind quarterback Denard Robinson.

“Fitz made a poor decision and has been suspended indefinitely because of that action,” coach Brady Hoke said in a statement Monday.

Saline (Mich.) Police Chief Larry Hrinik confirmed Toussaint’s arrest. He said that at the time of the arrest, Toussaint’s blood alcohol level was .12. Michigan’s legal limit is .08.

Hrinik said Saline police officers were working a high-visibility enforcement area in Ann Arbor Saturday evening when they witnessed Toussaint go through a red light at the intersection of Forest and Washtenaw.

“The officers could smell intoxicants on his breath,” Hrinik said. “They had him take a PBT (preliminary breath test) and ended up arresting him and brought him back here to process him.”

Running red lights while drunk, let’s me know that Michigan education is doing Toussaint well.
