1025-Tyrann-Mathieu-lsu-getty
Disgraced LSU football star Tyrann Mathieu -- aka the Honey Badger -- was arrested earlier today on drug-related charges ... this according to the Baton Rouge Police Dept.

According to the police report, cops were called to an apartment around 3:30 PM after an alleged confrontation. When officers arrived to the scene, Honey Badger answered the door ... and cops say they could smell a strong odor of weed.

Honey Badger was with 3 other guys --Jordan Jefferson, Derrick Bryant and Karnell Hatcher -- all former members of the LSU football team. In fact, Jefferson was the starting QB for LSU last season.

Cops say they searched the apartment ... and found a marijuana grinder, digital scale and 10 bags of high grade marijuana. Cops say 7 of the bags were found inside Bryant's booksack.

All four men were taken into custody and arrested.

Honey Badger and Jefferson were charged with simple possession of marijuana. Hatcher was charged with 2nd Offense Simple Possession of Marijuana and Bryant was charged with Possession With Intent to Distribute Marijuana.

It's been a rough year for Honey Badger, a former Heisman Trophy finalist -- earlier this year he was kicked off the team after reportedly failing multiple drug tests.

pragmatist    

another injustice that will permanently hinder his professional and personal lives, all for some dried flowers. How long are we going to sit idly by while our friends that do smoke are locked up while drunks smash themselves to death nightly in DUI and make horrible sexual partner decisions. Legalize Marijauana, BAN alcohol!!!!

MORE TAX PAYERS MONEY GOING TO WASTE BY RACIST OLD LAWS!!!

DUMMY’S!!!! LETS FINALLY MAKE THE SAFEST DRUG ON THE PLANET LEGAL.

IN THE BEGINNING… RACIST WHITE MEN DID NOT LIKE HAPPY BLACK PEOPLE RELAXING WITH A WEIRD SMOKE SO THEY CREATED POT LAWS.

YOU CAN DIE FROM TO MUCH WATER, CAFFEINE, SALT, ALCOHOL, NICOTINE AND SO ON… BUT YOU CANNOT OVERDOSE AND DIE FROM WEED AND IT IS ILLEGAL. WHY?

BLAME OUR RACIST, CLOSE MIND GOVERNMENT!

Idiots everywhere    

If you stoners would actually read the article...the cops were there for another reason. They had no choice but to investigate the weed situation when a cloud of cheeba rolled out into their faces when they knocked on the door and honey badger was standing there eating a bowl of fruity pebbles. Do not say mary jane never killed anyone. It's called illegal drug trade and people are killed over it every single day.
