Michigan’s Glasgow facing drunk-driving charge

When Michigan confirmed that starting offensive lineman Graham Glasgow had been suspended last month for “violating team standards,” it was subsequently reported that the suspension was connected to an arrest on a driving-related offense.

As it turns out, the “driving-related offense” was significantly more serious than speeding or blowing through a stop sign.

Both mlive.com and the Detroit Free Press reported Wednesday morning that Glasgow will be charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated. And arraignment on the charge has been scheduled for May 19.

The OWI complaint was issued Tuesday, the Free Press reports, following an incident that occurred March 15. The details surrounding the case have yet to be publicly divulged.

The Free Press wrote that “Michigan officials had no new comment today” on this latest development.

Glasgow was suspended for roughly week in mid-March before being allowed to return to spring practice. The lineman will also be suspended for the 2014 opener against Appalachian State.

Last season, Glasgow started 13 games — nine at center, four at guard. The junior’s expected to once again anchor an offensive line that was very suspect exiting the spring.

The Wolverines had pursued Alabama offensive line transfer Chad Lindsay before he decided Tuesday to finish out his playing career at Ohio State.

    Question: Will Hoke keep his job after this season?

    How many wins are required to keep his job?

    Wow, big fat Brady actually suspended someone. I guess you get suspended unless you’re accused of sexual assault (Gibbons, Brendan) or intimidate said sexual assault victim to get her to drop the charges (Lewan, Taylor).

    Yeah, but at least Dave Brandon isn’t quivering with the fear that Hoke will fire him.

    Nice attempt at trolling but that’s not how you spell Mary Sue Coleman.

    I’m not trolling. I’m simply making a counter-point. Trolling would include stuff like adding the lowercase letters ‘sc’ before the letters ‘UM’. It’s a very tired act, but trolls seem to like tired acts.

    You also might keep in mind that Urban Meyer has had plenty of his own players get in trouble with the law.

    Ok fine, you just botched the punchline, since it was the OSU president who made the ‘hope he doesn’t fire me’ quip, not the AD.

    Gee = Coleman
    Gene Smith = Brandon

    It was about as witty as putting a screen door on a battleship.

    Which instance has the better chance of injuring or killing a person:

    Getting a free tattoo or a drunk driving charge ?

    Apparently getting in an argument with a woman in a bar gets you three games if you’re a Buckeye (Hyde), though he was never charged with anything.

    Serious stuff like a trio of DUIs (AJ Williams, Glasgow, Toussaint) or a felony theft charge (Frank Clark, and I’m aware that he took a plea deal and can have his record expunged; he still stole from his fellow students) will net you a one-game timeout in Ann Arbor.

    @stoicpaisano

    So, how witty would you say the Brady Hoke fat jokes are?

  15. stoicpaisano says: Apr 24, 2014 3:20 PM

    Very much unfunny, just like the Ohio stuff from up north. It’s low-hanging fruit on both sides.

    Your joke wasn’t in bad taste, but was an inaccurate comparison is all.
