JaMarcus Russell Arrested in Alabama

Former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell was arrested in Mobile, AL today for possession of a controlled substance.

The substance in question was codeine syrup, this according to the Mobile Press-Register.

According to jail records, he was booked this afternoon and released a few minutes later.

Russell was the #1 overall pick back in 2007 -- but was cut by the Raiders a few months back.
