Michigan's Fitzgerald Toussaint Ticketed For Driving With Suspended License

Michigan freshman running back Fitzgerald Toussaint is scheduled to be arraigned in Ann Arbor's 15th District Court on Thursday morning for driving with a suspended license. The offense is considered a misdemeanor.

According to the Detroit News, court records indicate that Toussaint was ticketed on October 8, the evening before the Michigan-Michigan State game. Associate athletic director Dave Ablauf told the News that head coach Rich Rodriguez "has handled" the situation with Toussaint.

In on-the-field news concerning the Wolverines' redshirt freshman, Toussaint likely will not be available for Michigan's game versus Penn State on Saturday. Toussaint was originally thought to be making progress in recovering from a shoulder injury that's kept him out of the last three games. But Rodriguez updated his status on Wednesday.

From the Detroit Free Press:

"Fitz Toussaint is still not back. He’s getting better, but he’s not progressed to the point where we feel we can put him a game yet."
