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.

And if he was in CA he could have said he had a toothache and gotten a script. Legalize it already. It's weed. Literally. It's a weed. The government's just pissed it can't make money off an herb. the FDA will sell every flipping drug under the market that makes your arse bleed and you contemplate suicide because they make money. Who dies from smoking pot? I mean really. Ban the FDA.

It's weed, people! You could probably drink yourself in to a coma and still be on the football team. But Weed--NO! Give me a break. When is our government going to get a clue?

These boys (especially Tryann) is a utter disgrace! If he cares, he's definitely not showing it! GET YOURSELF TOGETHER, OR MOVE AWAY FROM LSU AND STOP DISGRACING THE LSU NAME!!
