MSU's Cooper must undergo daily alcohol testing

Posted: Updated:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- A court has ordered Michigan State defensive end Demetrius Cooper to undergo daily alcohol testing after he consumed alcohol last month in violation of his bond. Cooper in November accepted a plea deal on misdemeanor assault charges for spitting in the face of an East Lansing parking officer.

The deal was for the assault charge to be dismissed in favor of a littering fine if Cooper complied with conditions including no alcohol.

According to District Court documents, 22-year-old Cooper of Chicago consumed alcohol around April 21. On Tuesday, he was ordered to undergo daily alcohol testing between 5 and 9 a.m. and provide a weekly log to his probation officer.

The 6-foot-5, 253-pound Cooper started at defensive end last season. The fifth-year senior was projected as a starter this fall.
