Former University of Michigan star Loy Vaught arrested at Grand Rapids airport

By Staff

Police say Loy Vaught, the former NBA and University of Michigan standout, was arrested after creating a disturbance at Grand Rapids' Gerald R. Ford International Airport, according to an MLive report.

Vaught was arrested Saturday by airport police after he allegedly caused a disturbance in a passenger terminal building, airport spokesman Bruce Schedlbauer told MLive.

He said the arrest was based on Vaught’s behavior. Vaught was booked into the Kent County Jail and released on Sunday, records showed. State police records showed that police requested two misdemeanor warrants, the report said.

Vaught helped lead U-M to the 1989 NCAA title before going on to play in the NBA.

This is pretty hard to understand. Loy Vaught was a really high character kid while at Michigan and never once got into trouble. He's probably one of the most impressive examples how a Michigan basketball player improved from the time he came in to when he graduated. As a freshman, he was a skinny, unheralded player out of Grand Rapids. But he gained a lot of muscle, worked on his rebounding skills, developed a very good mid-range jump shot, and became a solid NBA player. I really hope this was not serious and based on a misunderstanding of some kind.
