Charges filed against Michigan football player Darryl Stonum
Michigan wide receiver Darryl Stonum is scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning in 15th District Court in Ann Arbor on charges of operating while intoxicated second-offense and driving with a suspended license, court records show.
The misdemeanor charges were filed on Tuesday by the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office. Stonum, who is from Stafford, Texas, and is entering his senior year, faces up to a year in jail if convicted. It's unclear whether Stonum has an attorney.
In September 2008, during his freshman year, police charged him with operating a vehicle while visibly impaired, and he was subsequently jailed for three nights in July 2010 for multiple probation violations.
In a statement last week announcing the suspension, coach Brady Hoke left the door open for Stonum's return to the team, saying he must first "fulfill all his commitments he has to the legal system and our program."
The arraignment is scheduled for 8 a.m. in front of 15th District Judge Julie Creal at the court at 301 East Huron St.
