The tale of Honey Badger will apparently NOT have a happy ending after all.
Then again, maybe he’ll end up as someone’s special honey badger in jail in the future?
Mathieu, also known as the Honey Badger, was arrested and charged Thursday along with three former LSU football players, including former quarterback Jordan Jefferson, after officers found the marijuana in Mathieu’s apartment, according to the police report. The report also said that officers found a marijuana grinder, a digital scale and 10 bags of high-grade marijuana inside the apartment.
Mathieu was dismissed from LSU’s football team over the summer, after reportedly failing a drug test. He then entered a rehab center in Houston and later returned to LSU to resume classes with hopes of playing football somewhere in 2013.
That place likely won’t be LSU now.
Remember when coach Les Miles said he expected there to be a happy ending for Mathieu in all of this? Well, this certainly isn’t what he meant. Mathieu appeared to be doing all the right things. He was getting help and getting back to school without focusing on football. While it looked like he wanted to return to LSU’s football team in the future, he knew it was going to be a tough road back.
Petrino’s son, Dominic, a one-time college quarterback, was arrested in Indiana on drug and DUI charges after being stopped by police. A statement from his father, Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino, reads in part: “Nick is our son, he is not a member of the Arkansas football team. As such, this is not a University of Arkansas issue. Instead, it is a family matter and a legal matter. My family will trust and respect the legal system and will not comment outside that process.”
What a wild time it is down in Blue Devil Land. 1st, the lacrosse rape accuser from yesteryear is charged with murder & now comes news about sophomore linebacker Tyree Glover, who was busted for trafficking the 80′s drug of choice: cocaine.
Coach David Cutliffe dismissed him from the team & offered this reasoning: “for conduct unbecoming of a member of the program”. Let it now & forever be known that Duke does not want their athletes to deal drugs. Check. Maybe while he’s at it, Glover can look for cocaine abuse treatment information and write an essay about it for class.
Let us also not forget that last year, 3 players were also kicked off the team for firing a gun on campus. Devils, indeed.
The Hearld-Sun has the details:
Glover was arrested by Durham police on Gregson Street and charged with trafficking in cocaine, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said Wednesday. Michael said police then obtained a search warrant and searched his dorm room on the Duke campus where they found marijuana. Michael said police confiscated 29.6 grams of powder cocaine and 72.4 grams of marijuana.
Glover was charged with trafficking in cocaine and possession of marijuana and cocaine with the intent to sell and deliver.
