Formerly charged with a DUI, Michigan running back Fitz Toussaint pleaded guilty to a lesser charge today; operating a motor vehicle while visibly impaired, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Toussaint was arrested and charged with driving under the influence on July 21st. As a result of his guilty plea, the DUI charges against Toussaint will be dropped.

His status as Michigan’s starting running back is still up in the air. Michigan is scheduled to play Alabama in its season opener this Saturday, but Toussaint’s eligibility is unclear at this point.
