Redshirt junior center Graham Glasgow was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated on March 15, landing him a suspension for part of spring as well as the team’s opener Aug. 30 against Appalachian State.
But there’s a little more to that story.
According to a police report obtained by the Detroit Free Press and Ann Arbor News via a Freedom of Information Act request, Glasgow was driving a Chevrolet Suburban around 8:30 p.m. on March 15 near State and William Streets. He blew a .11 blood-alcohol concentration at the scene and a .13 at the Ann Arbor Police Department Security Datamaster room, both above the legal limit of .08.
Glasgow told the police he’d had five Natural Light beers since 3 p.m. He failed multiple sobriety tests at the scene. He could not concentrate when asked to retrieve a number of items, stumbled when walking and could not stand on one leg. Items were falling out of the trunk while the car was moving.
“(Ann Arbor police officer Patrick) Maguire could immediately smell an overwhelming odor of intoxicants coming from the driver,” the report stated, according to the Ann Arbor News.
At least seven other passengers were in the car, more than the number of seatbelts. Glasgow was pulled over by Maguire when he allegedly noticed that senior volleyball player Lexi Dannemiller was in the passenger seat, not wearing a seatbelt and hanging out the window screaming at pedestrians. Dannemiller, 20, was charged with a minor in possession of alcohol and possession of a fraudulent ID, that of fifth-year senior rower Emily Idoni.
Glasgow was in Ann Arbor District Court on Monday for his pretrial hearing. At the request of his attorney, John Shea, the hearing was adjourned until June 16 so that a housekeeping matter could be resolved. He was dismissed on a $1,000 personal-recognizance bond and cannot leave the state or consume alcohol until his hearing.
Former left tackle and 2014 NFL Draft pick Taylor Lewan will also have his pretrial hearing for two charges of aggravated assault and one of battery that day.
