Mathieu and former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson were charged with simple possession of marijuana, the Baton Rouge police department said in a release. Former Tigers linebacker Karnell Hatcher also was charged with simple possession while former defensive back Derrick Bryant faces the most serious charge of possession with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to the police report, officers found the marijuana in Mathieu’s apartment Thursday afternoon. Mathieu answered the door, and officers “immediately smelled a strong odor of marijuana,” the police report stated.
After Mathieu, 20, gave the police his consent to search the apartment, officers discovered a marijuana grinder, a digital scale and 10 bags of high-grade marijuana, including seven in Bryant’s backpack, according to the report.
LSU’s Tyrann Mathieu In Drug-Related Trouble Again
This guy Tyrann Mathieu loves the sticky icky Mary Jane and he clearly doesn’t care how it will effect his life. After being kicked off LSU’s football team for failing multiple drug tests, then checking into rehab for marijuana use he and 3 other teammates have found themselves in even more hot water over their favorite recreational drug. This one winning them a trip to jail. I highly doubt he’ll be playing for LSU or any other team any time soon.
