Police reported that Toussaint cooperated and the arrest proceeded without incident.”

Fitzgerald Toussaint is a junior at the University of Michigan and has been a valuable player for his team, running for more than 1,000 yards and scoring 9 touchdowns last season. His coach, Brady Hoke, said “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“. Toussaint will have to pay $1,488 in fines, submit to random drug and alcohol testing for 90 days in addition to attending 10 meetings with Alcoholics Anonymous.
