Duke LB charged with trafficking cocaine

Tony Montana

Well, that will certainly get your attention.  And reset the “Days Without an Arrest” ticker back to double zeros.

Earlier this afternoon, Duke announced via a press release the dismissal of sophomore Tyree Glover for conduct unbecoming of a member of the program.  Apparently, part of that vast “conduct unbecoming” umbrella covers a football player attempting to play the role of a modern-day, real-life Tony Montana.  Allegedly.

According to the Durham Herald-Sun, Glover was arrested Tuesday and charged with trafficking in cocaine and possession of marijuana and cocaine with the intent to sell and deliver.  Both of those charges are felonies.

Following the arrest and subsequent acquisition of a search warrant, police confiscated 29.6 grams of powder cocaine and 72.4 grams of marijuana from his dorm room.

Glover is currently being held in the Durham County Jail on a $750,000 bond.

In his two seasons with the Blue Devils, Glover had played in 23 games, mainly as a backup.

    This is truly sad. This is a big offense if the prosecutors seek to prosecute it as such and the bail amount seems to indicate they will.

    May he get some help that he so obviously needs and may he be held accountable for what he has done.

    The North Carolina faithful will let them hear on this one.

    Oh, he was a football player?

    Never mind.

    Duke has a football team? I thought they only played basketball.

    An ounce of coke and like three ounces of weed? That’s like under 2 grand worth of stuff. Far from a kingpin, just a college kid trying to make some extra cash. Sadly, the punishment is going to far outweigh the crime.

    @slim charles:

    Have those frat boys at Columbia been sentenced yet? That was a bigger operation and part of an ongoing sting and probably establishes a precedent for these things.
