Auburn safety Demetruce McNeal is in the headlines again.

Per al.com, McNeal was recently arrested on a misdemeanor possession of marijuana charge and booked into the Lee County Detention Center. His bond was set at $500, which he posted in the morning.

McNeal was not at practice Saturday and first-year coach Gus Malzahn said he was still in the fact-gathering mode.

The senior is Auburn’s leading returning tackler (90), and in 2012 tied for the team lead in tackles for loss with seven. However, it’s been an eventful offseason for McNeal. He missed some practices in the spring dealing with a personal issue and has been sidelined in preseason camp because of a staph infection.

    The report doesn’t say, but if he was in a car he deserves to be jailed and suspended for being stupid.

    Sounds like he’s more trouble than he’s worth. If Auburn was smart they’d boot him off

    At this point it seems about half of the players are more trouble than they are worth on any team.

    Oregon, Cal, Illinois, Syracuse, Wisconsin, and Colorado can take a back seat. Auburn is college football’s new dope king!

    They also have an offensive (and ain’t that the TRUTH), who was shot in the but-tocks last summer. There are two parts to this story: the first is, his ass is so fat he didn’t realize he was shot; the second is, it also hit his brain….the thugs Chizek recruited, and this punk was one of them, is such TRASH they bring the entire Auburn University down. Hopefully Malzahn can change the culture.
