Fitzgerald Toussaint Suspended Indefinitely By Brady Hoke After Arrest

Michigan running back Fitzgerald Toussaint has been suspended indefinitely from the football program. Michigan head coach Brady Hoke announced the decision to suspend Toussaint on Monday afternoon after news of Toussaint's weekend arrest came to light.

According to a report from the Saline Patch, Toussaint was arrested on Saturday night for operating a vehicle while impaired. Toussaint was stopped for a traffic violation in downtown Ann Arbor and proceeded to fail a breathalyzer test. He was then arrested.

It remains to be seen just how long this indefinite suspension will last, but it would be surprising if Toussaint is available for Michigan's season-opening game against Alabama. Taking on the Crimson Tide was already a daunting challenge for the Wolverines, and it will be even tougher to pull off the upset if they are without Toussaint.
