UM's Toussaint pleads guilty to operating vehicle while intoxicated


SALINE - Michigan tailback Fitzgerald Toussaint pled guilty today in Washtenaw County District 14-A Court to a misdemeanor charge of operating while visibly impaired, stemming from his July arrest of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

AnnArbor.com reported that Toussaint will be sentenced Oct. 23 - four days before Michigan faces Nebraska in Lincoln, Neb.

During the Big Ten Conference coaches teleconference earlier this afternoon, Michigan coach Brady Hoke said no decision has been made as far as Toussaint's availability for Saturday's season opener against Alabama in Arlington, Texas.

"That decision will come before game time, obviously," Hoke said. "Right now he’s been practicing, getting reps, doing all the things guys do, so we’ll just see."
