According to Salinepatch.com  and Detective Don Lupi of the Saline Police, U of M’s starting RB Fitzgerald Toussaint was arrested for drunken driving Saturday evening at 11:45 p.m.

When police made the traffic stop, according to Lupi, Toussaint was given a Breathalyzer test and blew over the legal limit of .08. Toussaint was arrested and booked at the Saline Police Department, where he was held until sober. Lupi said police are forwarding the case to the Washtenaw County prosecutor’s office.

Toussaint who is a junior, rushed for 1,041 yards and had 8 tds last season.

Michigan Head Coach Brady Hoke released the following statement:

“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.”
