Arkansas LB hit with a couple of ‘substance’ charges

Ross Rasner, Kolton Browning

It’s been a solid 24 hours since news surfaced regarding a college football getting slapped by the long arm of the law, so of course we’re due for another one.

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Arkansas linebacker Ross Rasner was arrested very early Friday morning and charged with possession of a controlled substance and being a minor in possession of alcohol.  Rasner was arrested by university police officers after being found in a parked car with what’s believed to be marijuana and a 3/4 full bottle of whiskey.  No further details were available, including what brand of whiskey was involved.

As a result of the charges, Rasner will not play in Arkansas’ spring game Saturday afternoon.

The Democrat-Gazette notes that Rasner is the fifth Razorback facing charges in the past 10 months; three of those have been for possession of illegal substances.

The junior has played in 24 games during his two seasons with the Razorbacks.

    ‘marijuana and a 3/4 full bottle of whiskey’

    that could be the hook in kid rock song.

    ok, my boys need to stop this- the one conciliation is that it’s pot and liquor again (and again) but come on- stop getting caught with it.

    Can we stop arresting college kids for pot and liquor? This is half the reason kids go to college. Unless they are slingin pot or driving drunk (which in this case could be a factor since he was in a car) let him be. Like we say here in san francisco, let Timmy smoke!
