The new Ann Arbor.com, the entity that replaced the Ann Arbor News, is reporting that Boubacar Cissoko (Michigan's expected started at CB in the fall) was arrested on Belle Isle in June.

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. He was arrested when he failed to comply with an officer's orders to stop.

Cissoko is free on a $100 bond and is expected back in court on August 24 and could face up to a $1,000 fine and 90 days in jail (a lesser penalty is expected).

“He has been disciplined by the program,” Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said in a statement. “He is taking care of his responsibilities.”
