Michigan WR Stonum’s suspension stemmed from another DUI

Saturday, we learned that Michigan had indefinitely suspended wide receiver Darryl Stonum due to some type of “legal issue”.

Sunday brings word that the senior apparently didn’t learn from a previous “legal issue”.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the Wolverines’ second-leading receiver in 2010 was arrested and charged — again — with a drunk-driving offense very early Saturday morning.  A university police spokesperson said Stonum was pulled over at 2:25 a.m. yesterday, although the reason for the traffic stop is not known at this time.

As noted previously, this is Stonum’s second alcohol-related arrest since coming to Ann Arbor; on Labor Day weekend in 2008, Stonum was arrested and charged with DUI.

The Free Press reports that, between May of 2009 and June of 2010, Stonum violated the terms of his probation multiple times for missing court dates and failing to submit to random alcohol testing.  As a result, he was sentenced to three days in jail in June of last year.

Stonum was suspended by then-head coach Rich Rodriguez for one game following his first arrest.  It remains to be seen whether the second arrest for the same offense will result in any missed games this time around.

    What a waste. He’s tall, he’s fast, he has great hands. An NFL talent for sure, just ruining his opportunity for a great future, before the start of his senior season and before the draft.

    he should be suspended for several games if not all. send a message that players need to think about their actions and the results prior to making poor choices.

    he is 21 and he is NOT a child! 2nd dui puts everyone on the road in danger and he should do jail time no matter how good he could be or is and that includes floyd from ND as well

    Good job on Hoke’s part. No cover, no excuses.

    I don’t disagree with you in the slightest, but I think we should be clear. Floyd was arrested for DUI once. Yes, he had been cited for underage drinking previously, but not for DUI.

    An old adage that applies to this situation is listed below:

    That gin and juice doesn’t drink itself…
