After violating bond, Spartans' Demetrius Cooper to undergo daily alcohol testing

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- 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.

In November, Cooper 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, the 22-year-old Cooper, of Chicago, consumed alcohol around April 21.

On Tuesday, he was ordered to undergo daily alcohol testing between 5 a.m. 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.
