Michigan dismisses potential draft pick Frank Clark after arrest
Michigan coach Brady Hoke announced the team dismissed defensive end Frank Clark after his recent arrest.
Clark (6-foot-2, 277 pounds), in his second season as a fulltime starter, was tied for third on the team with 42 tackles; he also had 4.5 sacks and leads the team with 13.5 tackles for loss.
Clark is a Cleveland native and was arrested in Erie County, Ohio, which is west of Cleveland. Clark was charged with two misdemeanors for allegedly attacking his girlfriend in their hotel room in Perkins Township, Ohio. The Sandusky (Ohio) Register, quoting a police report, reported that the alleged victim said Clark punched her in the face and that she bit him in the nose in an attempt to get him off of her on Saturday night.
