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.
On Friday, Mathieu, former quarterback Jordan Jefferson and former defensive back Derrick Bryant were released from jail while Karnell Hatcher remained behind bars.
“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).
