Misdemeanor pot charge nets Iowa State’s starting DE a suspension

Landry Jones, Willie Scott AP

Following the NCAA-related news from earlier, today is not turning out to be Iowa State’s best.

According to the Des Moines Register, starting defensive end Willie Scott has been suspended from the program indefinitely after he was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor. The incident, which is said to have occurred last week, began when Iowa State University police stopped Scott for a headlight violation.

An affidavit released to the Iowa State Daily said the arresting officer “was able to smell the strong odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle” from the vehicle Scott was driving, and that the player had a “green leafy substance located on his lap, consistent with the appearance of marijuana.”

Police searched the vehicle and found a jar of marijuana. Scott later tested positive for THC.

Scott started 13 games for the Cyclones last season, recording 37 tackles.

    CFT should start a ‘Police Blotter’ link similar to PFT. It might save you some time.

    If smoking cigarettes is legal so should weed.

    No issue with legalization, but this dude was driving. Bit of a difference.
