Jason Peacock, make some room. You have a bit of off-field teammate baggage to fit into you’re offseason doghouse.
According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, wide receiver “Michael Kane Whitehurst” was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Here’s the paper’s description of what led to the arrest:
According to the arrest report, Whitehurst was arrested at 3:39 a.m. on Sunday by an officer responding to a complaint of a black BMW squealing its tires in the Garland Avenue Parking Deck on the UA campus. The officer clocked the car going 25 miles per hour in the facility, which has a speed limit of 10 miles per hour.
The arresting officer reported smelling burnt marijuana coming from the car upon the traffic stop, and found a “grinder, pipe and small baggie of marijuana” inside the vehicle.
(Writer’s note: it’ll be a great day when the law and/or society realizes there’s zero difference between weed and beer.)
(Editor’s note: don’t squeal your tires at three in the morning. Anywhere and under any influence. Sad that needs to be said at all.)
In 2011, Whitehurst had as many receptions (zero), receiving yards (zero) and receiving touchdowns (zero) as most reading this post.
