http://mgoblog.com/content/josh-furm...legal-troublesSam Webb confirmed that Josh Furman is currently suspended from the team this morning and an alert reader passed along the likely reason as to why after a search of the Michigan courts' open database:
If 600 East Madison sounds like a familiar address, congratulations. You have lived or currently live in South Quad. Furman is facing three charges: domestic violence, assault, and breaking and entering. He's got a trial date in two weeks. Hoke:
“Josh was suspended indefinitely from team activities as soon as we became aware of the report,” said Michigan coach Brady Hoke in a released statement. “These are serious allegations, We will allow the judicial process to run its course before making a final determination on his status with the program.”
So he broke into his girlfriend's dorm and beat her up?
According to attorney Gerry Mason, Furman was at a campus apartment with two women the early morning of Feb. 11 and another man was texting Furman attempting to “pick a fight.”
“Mr. Furman got up and they thought he was going to try to find the man so the two females jumped on him,” Mason said. “The only person injured was Mr. Furman, who had a dreadlock pulled out of his head.”
Furman went home voluntarily but the police were called because of the chaos at the other apartment, Mason said, leading to the situation and the charges.

For those who don't want to read...
Someone was sending one of Furman's girl friends racy texts. He got pissed and was going to confront the kid. The girls kept him from going, and a person in another apartment called the cops thinking the girls were being attacked. The end.
