Projected starting cornerback Boubacar Cissoko was arrested on June 6 in Belle Isle for disorderly conduct, according to AnnArbor.com (the first, and certainly not the last, time I’ll be linking to the new A2 News venue). Disorderly conduct is a misdemeanor charge, and Rich Rodriguez is quoted as saying Cissoko has already been disciplined by the program. He is due in court August 24 for a pre-trial hearing, and could be punished with up to a $1,000 fine and 90 days in jail. AnnArbor.com’s account of the incident:
According to a Detroit Police Department arrest report, Cissoko was a passenger in a car that was pulled over June 6 for speeding on Belle Isle.
After a three- or four-minute pursuit, the driver was asked out of the car and hand-cuffed. Cissoko then began yelling “Leave my boy the (expletive) alone,” the report said, and was arrested when he failed to comply with an officer’s orders to stop.
He was released on $100 bond.
Hopefully this won’t affect Cissoko’s status in the upcoming season, since Michigan is already razor-thin in the secondary.
