...and probably Chris Richards, who is apparently named "Christian." He's not acting very Christian these days. From MLive:

Two University of Michigan football players are accused of attacking a fellow student in the West Quad residence hall for no apparent reason on St. Patrick's Day.

Carson Butler, 19, and Christian Richards III, 19, were arraigned today in 15th District Court on one count of aggravated assault and one count of assault and battery each. They were released on $5,000 personal bond and have a pre-trial hearing March 27.

Richards had some unreported legal issues earlier this year:
In addition to the charges stemming from Saturday's incident, Richards has another case pending. He was charged with illegal entry on campus last year. Richards failed to appear for his arraignment on that charge, and a bench warrant had been issued for his arrest.
With Butler already hanging by a thread -- he was one of the three who were "possibly... maybe not probably" going to get back this year -- this has to end his career at Michigan. Richards is probably also going to get the hook, what with the breaking and entering and skipping out on arraignment and then beating the crap out of a random student. Scholarship count for '08 now at 15.

Update: hey, these are our first Fulmer Cup points ever. Too bad it's not something innocuous like speeding tickets and will actually cost is a potential starter.

I thought Bruce Weber said that speeding tickets aren't innocuous?

Word going around is the "W" for AA and CB while its a "G" for Germany!!! Strictly unverified, so could be false!!

Richards' Godfather is none other than Ron English. Wonder how that might play into this.

Oh dam....

I think that Richards has to be kicked off the team, English being his godfather or not. You can't fail to appear & assault a person and still get the privilege of playing football for Michigan. It sucks, but I'd say that we have to get rid of Butler as well.

Yuck. Butler could have been very good.

It never ceases to amaze me when I read about clowns like these guys, esp. alleged studs like Butler. They've got everything on a goddamn platter right in front of them — fully-paid education at one of the most prestigious universities in whole freaking world, plus the opportunity to just perhaps make more money in a year than most Americans will make in 20 years — and they piss it all away in favor of moronic stuff like this. Like Brian says, retards.

(and I vote thumbs-down on the blog changes. Having to input the word verfication every time is not an improvement... making comments on the old haloscan was much easier. blarrrgghh.)

Michigan has much higher recruiting standards than the rest of the Big Ten. *waving hands frantically*

If all that CB and AA got busted for was weed it will probably just be scare 'em straight tactics by Carr. Obviously these players know they are held to a higher standard than everyday students, but they are young men at college. Ramifications sure, but really who didn't smoke a little weed in college. Assault on the other hand, not so common place.
