Michigan's Toussaint pleads guilty

The SportsXchange

University of Michigan running back Fitzgerald Toussaint pled guilty Tuesday to a lesser drunk driving charge, according to multiple reports.

Toussaint, 22, was charged with operating while intoxicated after he ran a red light in Ann Arbor last month, and registered a 0.12 blood-alcohol content.

As part of his agreement, Toussaint's OWI charge was dropped. He is scheduled to be sentenced at 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 23. District Court Judge Kirk W. Tabbey ordered him to stay away from alcohol and illegal drugs.

He was suspended by Michigan coach Brady Hoke after his arrest. Hoke told reporters Tuesday that he hadn't decided whether Toussaint would play against No. 2 Alabama on Saturday.

The junior rushed for 1,041 yards last season.
