Darryl Stonum Suspended For DUI Arrest

Michigan football wide receiver Darryl Stonum was suspended indefinitely because of being arrested for his second drunken driving-related offense. The Detroit Free Press has the details:

Washtenaw County Jail officials said this evening that Stonum was booked into the jail at 4:30 a.m. Friday for second-offense drunken driving and was released at 10:53 a.m. According to jail officials, University of Michigan police made the arrest.

Stonum was arrested shortly after being pulled over at 2:25 a.m. on Friday. The arrest happened at the intersection of Maynard and William, which is near the University of Michigan campus.

On Saturday, head coach Brady Hoke announced that Stonum was indefinitely suspended. Stonum's first suspension at Michigan was for one game after being arrested for operating while intoxicated in September 2008. The arrest happened the night of the comeback against Wisconsin.

Stonum's sentence for the offense included a fine, community service and probation. Violations of his probation (not completing responsibilities that came along with it) landed him in jail for three days last summer, but he did not miss any games or anything like that.

With yet another legal issue coming up a couple days ago, Stonum is now once again suspended, and this time it could be for a much longer period of time considering this was his second drunken driving-related arrest.
