Michigan suspends safety Josh Furman

By Tom Fornelli | College Football Writer
Michigan announced on Monday that it had suspended safety Josh Furman from the team due to some legal troubles Furman is having. Furman is scheduled to appear in front of a judge on April 23 after facing counts of domestic violence, assault, and breaking and entering/illegal entry.

“Josh was suspended indefinitely from team activities as soon as we became aware f the report,” said head coach Brady Hoke in a released statement. “These are serious allegations, We will allow the judicial process to run its course before making a final determination on his status with the program.”

The alleged incident took place on February 11. While the court has suppressed the case and details of the charges aren't available Furman's lawyer, Gerry Mason, says the case is being overblown.

According to Mason, Furman was at an apartment early that morning when he was receiving text messages from somebody looking to "pick a fight." When Furman stood up two girls he was at the apartment with wouldn't let him leave.

“Mr. Furman got up and they thought he was going to try to find the man so the two females jumped on him,” Mason told the Detroit Free Press . “The only person injured was Mr. Furman, who had a dreadlock pulled out of his head.”

Mason also told the paper he has a statement from the two girls that will exonerate Furman of all charges.
