Pair of Aggies arrested on misdemeanor charges

Texas A&M defensive lineman Isaiah Golden and linebacker Darian Claiborne were arrested over the weekend and each charged with a misdemeanor, according to the Bryan Eagle. Golden was arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana charge while Claiborne was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Five-star wide receiver commit Speedy Noil was in the car with Golden and Claiborne, but was not arrested. A snippet from the Eagle:

Claiborne began to protest as the officer placed Golden under arrest, saying “this was going to ruin the Defendant’s college football career,” according to the report.

After Golden’s arrest, the officer had Niles and Noil exit the vehicle, the report said. Officers searched the car and found a bottle of Paul Masson Brandy that was 3/4 full, the report stated. It was not clear where or how the bottle of brandy was obtained because all four occupants are younger than 21, the report said. The arresting officer said in the report that Claiborne poured the alcohol onto the ground and that the action was recorded by his on-board video camera in his patrol car.

Claiborne, who was arrested in December for possession of marijuana and ADHD medicine, apparently triggered his disorderly conduct arrest by yelling “water in it” loud enough to violate a county noise ordinance. He posted $300 bail and was released; Golden posted $2,000 bail and was released.

Golden started six games for Texas A&M in his freshman year last season, while Claiborne started nine games and was named to the SEC All-Freshman team.

    This is really disappointing. All three of these players are very young and have TONS of potential.

    This is the 2nd incident for Claiborne, who was suspended for the ChickFilA bowl too. I think Claiborne needs a lengthy suspension(3-4 games), and maybe 1 game for Golden.

    Sumlin hasn’t been the biggest disciplinarian so we’ll see how he handles this. But he needs to nip this in the bud. Especially since newbie Speedy Noil was involved as well.

    All three of them are lucky they weren’t arrested for having an open bottle of alcohol and under age….

    Defending “ruining his football career should have been the thought before he got into a vehicle with someone who is in posession of an illegal substance.

    The worst part about this is they were parked in a handicap spot too…. #CMonMan

    More Aggie football players getting busted for weed. At least they play on that shitty defense and no one will miss them if they are gone. They can’t stop anybody, why keep them around for the bad PR?

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Sumlin cut Claiborne loose. That’s 2 strikes for him. At some point, you have to change the culture and make an example of someone. Otherwise you turn into Mack Brown, but without a crystal football.

    I am one pissed off 18 year season ticket holder right now.
