O’Maury Samuels, who appeared in 15th District Court on Wednesday on one charge of domestic violence and one charge of malicious destruction of property, has been dismissed from the Michigan football team.
The offense was committed Dec. 8. Samuels attended the hearing Wednesday at 15th District Court in Ann Arbor, according to a court spokesperson. Samuels was a sophomore running back at Michigan.
“O’Maury Samuels has been dismissed from the Michigan Football program,” Michigan football spokesperson Dave Ablauf said in a statement sent Wednesday.
This is not the first time Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has dismissed a player charged with domestic violence. Nate Johnson, a former Michigan defensive back, was kicked off the team in October 2017, after his arrest for hitting a woman. He later pleaded guilty to one count of domestic violence and battery.
