OWI Cause for Suspension From Team
University of Michigan junior offensive lineman, Graham Glasgow, 21, is scheduled for arraignment for drunk driving later this month. The charge is the result of a drunk driving incident that took place on March 15th.
Glasgow was stopped by police at Maynard and William streets in Ann Arbor. He was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI). Police have not released any other details about the incident, citing that it is their policy not to reveal details until after a person is arraigned.
Glasgow, who started every game for Michigan last season as a sophomore, including four games at guard, was suspended on March 20th. The drunk driving incident was not disclosed to the public as the reason for his suspension at the time. The reason given was simply cited as a “violation of team standards” by Michigan coach Brady Hoke. As a result of his suspension, he will be required to sit out a portion of spring practice and to miss Michigan’s August 30th season-opener against Appalachian State.
If this is Glasgow’s first drunk driving offense, the penalties can include up to 93 days in jail, a fine of up to $500, up to 360 hours of community service, suspension of his driver’s license for 30 days, and points added to his driving record. In addition, the court may order Glasgow to participate in, and successfully complete, a rehabilitation program.
Glasgow will be arraigned on May 19th in the 15th Judicial District Court in Ann Arbor. Incidentally, former Michigan left tackle Taylor Lewan will also be arraigned in the same court, on that same day, for one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery. Their charges are unrelated.
