Arizona DB charged on multiple drug-related felonies; no longer with team

Arizona v Stanford AP

Well then.

According to a City of Tucson news release, Arizona Wildcats safety Patrick Onwuasor has been charged with four felonies, three of which are drug related. The release states Onwuasor is facing charges of possession of a narcotic drug for sale, possession of marijuana for sale, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony drug offense and possession of narcotics paraphernalia. He was arraigned Monday.

The charges reportedly stem from a home investigation in April. The release states police executed a search warrant in Onwuasor’s apartment after receiving said warrant from a separate home invasion in Beverly Hills, Calif.

A statement from Wildcats head coach Rich Rodriguez says he is aware of the situation and that Onwuasor has been removed from the program.

Onwuasor played in 12 games last season and had 36 tackles. He was expected to compete for a starting role as a sophomore this fall.

    Oh my! These are serious charges. Why do these young adults do stupid things like this?

    Sad thing is that this guy probably found a career in dealing drugs now that football has been taken away.

    No, not at all! He has already earned his degree but it has not been presented to him yet. It will be one of three: FIRST / SECOND / or THIRD DEGREE FELONY!

    Funny that when you break into a house, it’s called a home invasion, but when police break into your house, it’s a home investigation.

    Hi Mr. Kercheval:

    As you may or may not be aware, I have purposely not responded to Paul Hargis who continues to refer to me as “suckcocker”. Can you please ask him to cease using this name to refer to me or else I will be forced to escalate retaliatory responses which folks really don’t wish to read.

    Thank-you for your consideration in this matter.

    Game: Be glad you aren’t a regular on PBT, where Mr. Hargis delights in using derogatory grade-school epithets in lieu of mature responses. Take the high road and ignore the adolescent idiocy as most Lakers fans do.

    OK, thanks for your suggestion. I will continue in that mode. The Gamecocker

    Anusosies: My bile was reserved for Mr. Lakerluver on PBT. He asked for it everyday. That you are defendeding him and this racist piece of garbage speaks volumes about you as a person.

    Did you change your handle name? I don’t ever recall seeing you post.
