According to a report by MLive on Wednesday, Connolly — who was the director of performance science for the Michigan football program — was reportedly arrested on suspicion of drunk driving earlier this month.
The report states that following his arrest, Connolly was uncooperative with the police, doing things such as yelling obscenities at officers, refusing a breathalyzer test, being verbally and physically combative with officers and workers at the University of Michigan Emergency Room, and biting a lab technician, among other things.
In the MLive article, Ann Arbor police Lt. Matthew Lige is quoted as saying misdemeanor charges likely will be pressed against Connolly after lab results are released.
However, Connolly has not yet been formally charged.
