I stand by my statement. Arresting a kid and potentially ruining his life over pot is bull$iena. Cops could have exercised some discretion in the matter.
Um no. Grontarek is the a-hole here.
damn shame...over pot no less. He should have been more responsible, no doubt about that, but what a silly thing to arrest someone for. a-hole campus cops.
Using pot should be treated like a traffic offense. Pay a large fine so you dont do it again. End of story.
There are a number of issues, possession of an illegal substance, NCAA and school violations but the most serious to me looks to be the tampering charges (I'm no lawyer)....it appears that once he realized he was about to get cooked by the cops, he tried to swallow the weed or flush it down the toilet to destroy evidence. I'm sure once he did that, the cops were not pleased.
Just a terrible series of judgment calls by this young man that probably panicked...I suspect we won't see him this year and potentially off the team for good. In matters such as these, this school and this administration always does the correct thing. I have no reason to doubt their judgment. I'm sure this will be handled appropriately.
