Michigan State cornerback Chris L. Rucker has been charged in East Lansing with operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
East Lansing District Court records show Rucker was ticketed Sunday and has until Oct. 20 to appear for arraignment.
Coach Mark Dantonio announced Sunday night that Rucker was suspended for at least one game for an unspecified violation of team rules. He's expected to miss this weekend's home game against Illinois.
Rucker had an interception in the Spartans' 34-17 win over Michigan on Saturday.
The senior started 11 games last season and the first six this season for the Spartans.
Court records don't show if Rucker has an attorney.

    Is it too much to ask of these athletes to stay sober and clean for at least the season they are playing. There are thousands of otehr students who would love to have the the opportunity to go to MSU.

    Hey, Chris, there's celebrating a great win and then there's being an idiot; you obviously chose the idiot route this time around. It would sure be nice if you guys could better show your appreciation for the opportunities you've been given. Hopefully you've now learned your lessson.
