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.

just my opinion    

do people really deserve a criminal record over personal use marijuana? america can be so prehistoric. i know plenty of professionals...lawyers, teachers, business owners, students, etc who use marijuana and it does nothing to anyone else. i use medical marijuana and i dont have a card, so what! bigger fish to fry.

It is such B***S*** that this is still an issue. You should actually get extra points if you are in shape enough to smoke pot AND play a sport in college. PS- Using Pot Never Killed ANYONE EVER PERIOD. Drinking- that kills more people. Maybe that should be illegal.

Remember when TMZ first started out and gave out good Hollywood news? Those days are over and they are the BET of entertainment news. Black athletes, rappers , lindsay and the fat baby honey boo boo is all they are good for anymore. Next.
