Georgia sophomore wide receiver Riley Ridley and one other person were arrested last Saturday night on a charge of misdemeanor marijuana possession. Per AJC.com:
quote:

Officer Chase Pate of the ACCPD wrote that he pulled over a white Camaro after it failed to yield at the intersection of Baxter and Alps Road. Ridley was a passenger in the vehicle driven by a 22-year-old female.

Pate wrote that “the odor of raw marijuana was present and coming from the window,” and then requested a backup officer. During that time, “Ridley explained that he was an athlete and he requested to call someone to help the traffic stop ‘go a whole lot smoother,’ ” the officer wrote.

When the backup officer arrived they conducted a search of the vehicle and found “multiple small bags of marijuana.”
Ridley recorded 12 catches for 238 yards and two touchdowns last season.

A marijuana arrest calls for a suspension of 10 percent of a player’s season, according to the UGA student-athlete handbook.

Haha....I bet another player told him to tell the cops if he gets busted to request to call someone to help the traffic stop go a whole lot smoother. What a dumb ass.

I see these marijuana arrests and it blows me away. I don't think the kids in my town know that it is illegal. Can't go anywhere without somebody reaking of it.
