In May Michigan suspended wide receiver Darryl Stonum after he was arrested for drunk driving. It was the third time Stonum had been in trouble with the law since coming to Michigan. While Stonum has yet to be reinstated to the team by Brady Hoke, he has had his day in court, and Stonum was sentenced to two years probation with a suspended sentence of one year in prison.
What that means, essentially, is that while Stonum doesn't have to serve any time in prison, if he violates the terms of his probation he may find himself behind bars for a year.
Stonum was arrested by university police on May 6th after being pulled over and having a blood-alcohol level of 0.11. He had previously found himself in trouble during his freshman season in 2008 when he was charged with operating a vehicle while visibly impaired. Stonum then spent three nights in jail last July after multiple probation violations.
Under the terms of his latest sentence, Stonum must submit to daily breathalyzer tests, random drug tests and is not allowed to drive for 45 days.
In three seasons at Michigan Stonum has 76 receptions for 1,008 yards and 6 touchdowns.
