Ever since the news broke that Michigan senior point guard Zavier Simpson had been suspended for breaking team rules, there has been plenty of speculation as to why.
Well, according to reports, Simpson crashed his car into a pole in the middle of the night and then denied doing it just prior to the suspension.
Zavier Simpson drove a vehicle into a street pole while driving hours after after Michigan’s loss to Illinois last month, police said.
Officers discovered the senior point guard outside of a vehicle that made contact with a pole on the corner of Hill Street and South Forest Avenue at 3:03 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26, Ann Arbor police said.
Officers asked Simpson if he was the driver, and he at first denied it, police said. He later owned up to the crash after further investigation, police said.
Officers issued Simpson a ticket for driving too fast for road conditions, police said. Police declined to comment on whether there was any suspicion of impaired driving or if a breathalyzer was administered.
