Yesterday, Tyrann Mathieu was one of four former LSU players arrested by Baton Rouge Police Department officers on marijuana-related charges. The latest problem officially eliminated any talk — realistic or not — of Mathieu ever returning to LSU as a football player — or as a football player at the collegiate level for that matter.
“It’s certainly not a place where you want your ex-players gathered or involved,” LSU coach Les Miles said of the situation. Police said in an incident report that they found a marijuana grinder, digital scale and 10 bags of high grade pot.
Mathieu and Jefferson were charged with simple possession of marijuana, while Hatcher was charged with second-offense possession of marijuana. Bryant is facing the most significant charge (possession with intent to distribute).
