Court dismisses charge of altering driver's license against Alex Malzone
Michigan reserve quarterback Alex Malzone made headlines when it was reported on Tuesday that he was in court for an atypical charge.
Malzone admitted guilt to a disorderly conduct charge for blocking a sidewalk/street and paid a $175 fine for the nontraffic civil infraction.
He also was facing a charge for altering a driver’s license. But the outcome of that ruling in the 15th district court in Ann Arbor was unknown because online records hadn’t been updated yet.
As it turned out, that charge was dismissed.
The Detroit Free Press reported that the prosecutor dropped the charge against Malzone on Tuesday after he appeared in court for his pre-trial hearing. The case is now closed.
It remains to be seen if the former four-star prospect will face any additional discipline from the team.
The former Brother Rice (MI) standout didn’t play as a true freshman and he wasn’t expected to factor into Michigan’s quarterback battle.
