According to a report from a local television station in Grand Rapids, Michigan, former Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier had a strange episode in an apartment complex one month ago that resulted in the quarterback being hospitalized.
[UPDATE: The Associated Press has also received a copy of the police report and confirms the details.]
The report says that police had to be called to an apartment complex in Grand Rapids where his girlfriend lives on April 22nd after Forcier was reportedly hanging out of a window. An unspecified woman then called police concerned that Forcier was going to jump.
No one will confirm whether this was a suicide attempt, but the police report says the woman who called was concerned Forcier would jump from the window.
Officers were able to get Forcier to open the bedroom door. He was not arrested, but transported to a hospital.
GRPD released a report, redacting several details. When contacted, officers would not provide additional details, citing medical privacy laws.
Forcier had been the starter at Michigan in 2009, but was replaced by Denard Robinson in 2010 and did get plenty of playing time with the Wolverines. He was then ruled academically ineligible before Michigan's loss in the Gator Bowl, and did not play in the game. Shortly after that Forcier announced he was transferring from Michigan, and had decided to go to Miami before it was announced earlier this month that he was leaving Miami as well.
