The usual spate of offseason arrests continues unabated this morning with word that a member of the Arkansas football program has found himself on the wrong side of the law.
According to the Associated Press, wide receiver Lance Ray was arrested late Saturday night and charged with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and minor in possession of alcohol. Apparently, it was the luxurious aroma of the weed that did the redshirt freshman in.
The 19-year-old Ray was arrested late Saturday night by university police after the smell of marijuana was detected coming from his dorm room. According to a preliminary police report, Ray had a brown rolled cigarette containing a green leafy substance that tested positive for marijuana.
The school has not commented on Ray’s sticky legal situation.
While he had just one reception for six yards in 2010, he averaged nearly 23 yards on 23 kick returns.
