Former LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu and three other former LSU football players were arrested this afternoon on charges of marijuana possession. Mathieu has been officially charged with simple possession of marijuana. Considering that Mathieu has already been dismissed from the LSU football team for failing two drug tests (as a result of his marijuana habit) and been sent to rehab, the timing of this incident couldn't be worse for him.
WAFB has more details on how the arrest went down:
At approximately 3:30pm Thursday, officers were dispatched to an apartment at 262 West State in Baton Rouge in reference to a complaint about a man attempting to force his way in to the complex through a security gate, police said. According to police news release: The man was confronted by a maintenance worker and words were exchanged. Before officers arrived the man had been let into the complex by a resident and was seen going into an apartment. When officers went to the apartment and knocked on the door it was answered by the resident, Tyrann Mathieu, age 20, police said.
"Officers immediately smelled a strong odor of marijuana and obtained consent from Mathieu to search the apartment", a police news release said. "Inside they found three other men, including the one who had allegedly tried to force his way through the gate. He was identified as Jordan Jefferson," police said. Police said the other two men were identified as Bryant and Hatcher.
So Tyrann Mathieu gets arrested for smoking weed in his own apartment because Jordan Jefferson is too stupid to figure out how a gate works? That is some serious bullshit.
