Marshall Henderson reportedly in possession of cocaine, marijuana
Ole Miss announced on Wednesday that Henderson was suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules. According to a report, Henderson’s violation was a failed a drug test. Now we’re learning what may have prompted the test (if it wasn’t randomly administered).
The Wall Street Journal reports that Henderson was pulled over by Oxford police in May on suspicion of speeding. The officer noticed a smell of marijuana in the car and says Henderson handed him a bag that contained a small nugget of marijuana. A search by a police dog also turned up a clear plastic bag that appeared to contain a small amount of cocaine.
Henderson was cited for having no proof of insurance, but not charged with anything else.
Henderson has a long history with drugs. In 2009, he was busted for trying to buy 57 grams of marijuana with counterfeit money. He spent some time in jail in 2012 for violating his probation by testing positive for alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine.
Based on all this information, is anyone really surprised by the May events?
