Michigan cornerback Boubacar Cissoko faces a court date next month after being arrested in June for disorderly conduct. 

Cissoko, a projected starter this fall, has a pretrial hearing Aug. 24. He could face up to a $1,000 fine and 90 days in jail but likely won't serve time. Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez issued a statement Friday that Cissoko had been disciplined by the program. 

"He is taking care of his responsibilities," the statement reads.

According to the arrest report, Cissoko was a passenger in a car pulled over for speeding and started yelling at a police officer after the officer asked the driver to get out of the car. 

Cissoko started two games last year and recorded 15 tackles and three pass breakups. He also led the Wolverines with 20 kickoff returns for 467 yards.
