Michigan redshirt freshman Alex Malzone had an uphill battle to begin with to win the quarterback battle.

Now, that hill is even steeper.

Malzone faced one charge of altering a driver’s license and one count of disorderly conduct on Tuesday at Ann Arbor’s 15th District Court. The second-year signal-caller was cited for both charges on April 26, according to MLive.com.

The report said that Malzone admitted guilt for the disorderly conduct charge and paid the $175 fine. Public records did not report the outcome of Malzone’s pretrial for altering a license.

Malzone wasn’t expected to have a say in Michigan’s already crowded quarterback picture. The former four-star recruit was behind Wilton Speight, John O’Korn and Shane Morris throughout spring after taking a redshirt as a freshman. Malzone was the No. 4 recruit from Michigan in the 2015 class.

It remains to be seen what sort of discipline the Brother Rice graduate will receive from the team.
