Michigan basketball’s Zavier Simpson crashed Warde Manuel’s wife’s car

Michigan basketball‘s senior point guard crashed the car of the athletic director’s wife right before his suspension last week.

Zavier Simpson was given a civil infraction Wednesday for speeding too fast for conditions on Jan. 26, Ann Arbor police Sgt. Bill Clock said.

The 22-year-old from Ohio and the Wolverines had suffered a 64-62 loss to Illinois hours before police were called to a vehicle crashed at Hill Street and South Forest Avenue in Ann Arbor.

Police found a vehicle crashed into a pole, possibly a sign for a bike lane, in the early morning hours about 3 a.m..

They found the car with no driver, but Simpson and another person walked up.

Simpson initially gave police a false name and denied involvement in the crash.

“They figured it out – didn’t take long,” Clock said of Simpson’s identity.

Police tracked down the owner of the vehicle, Chrislan Manuel, who is married to Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel.

Officers were able to determine through Chrislan Manuel and her son, Evan Manuel, that Simpson was the driver. Evan Manuel is a student manager for the basketball team.
