University of Michigan cornerback Boubacar Cissoko arrested for disorderly conduct
Cissoko is due in court Aug. 24 for a pre-trial hearing. He could face up to a $1,000 fine and 90 days in jail, but is likely subject to a much a smaller penalty.
“He has been disciplined by the program,” Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said in a statement. “He is taking care of his responsibilities.”
Both Cissoko and running back Kevin Grady, who served jail time this off-season for driving while intoxicated, have been participating in Michigan’s off-season program.
According to a Detroit Police Department arrest report, Cissoko was a passenger in a car that was pulled over June 6 for speeding on Belle Isle.
After a three- or four-minute pursuit, the driver was asked out of the car and hand-cuffed. Cissoko then began yelling “Leave my boy the (expletive) alone,” the report said, and was arrested when he failed to comply with an officer's orders to stop.
He was released on $100 bond.
Cissoko played in all 12 games last year and had three pass breakups, starting against Toledo and Purdue. He’s also expected to vie for the starting kick-return job this fall.
