UM s Grady jailed for probation violations


WYOMING, Mich. University of Michigan running back Kevin Grady has been jailed for seven days after pleading guilty to violating his probation on a 2008 drunken driving conviction.

The 22-year-old Grady entered the plea Thursday in Kent County District Court.

Grady was arrested July 2 in the Grand Rapids suburb of Wyoming for driving with what police said was a blood-alcohol level about three-and-a-half times the state s legal limit. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drunken driving.

Court officials tell The Grand Rapids Press that Grady failed to properly report to probation agents and failed to complete 24 hours of community service, among other violations.

Michigan athletic department spokesman Bruce Madej said football coach Rich Rodriguez was out of town and could not be reached for comment.
