Court dismisses altered license charge against Michigan QB Alex Malzone

June 1, 2016

Michigan redshirt freshman Alex Malzone will not face any further punishment from the legal system after his charge of altering a driver’s license was dismissed by Ann Arbor’s 15th District Court on Tuesday.

Per court records, the city attorney entered a motion to dismiss the charge after an order of nolle prosequi was entered — which means the charge will not be prosecuted.

Malzone appeared in Judge Karen Quinlan Valvo’s court Tuesday with attorney Alexander Hermanowski (of Student Legal Services) and the case is now closed, per records.

The 6-foot-1, 222-pounder did admit guilt to disorderly conduct earlier Tuesday, resulting in a fine of $175 stemming from an incident in Ann Arbor on April 26.

The former Birmingham Brother Rice quarterback and four-star recruit did not play last season as he took a redshirt year.

He exited spring practice earlier this year behind John O’Korn, Wilton Speight and Shane Morris in Michigan’s quarterback competition.
