Purdue linebacker Dwayne Beckford is sitting out spring practice while he deals with The Man:
Purdue University linebacker Dwayne A. Beckford faces another criminal charge, this one for possession of marijuana, stemming from a traffic stop in December that led to his arrest for impaired driving.
According to Capt. Eric Chin of the Purdue University Police Department, his department’s policy is to search vehicles that have been impounded following a traffic stop or arrest. That happened after Beckford’s Dec. 16 arrest.
“We found marijuana — what appears to be suspected marijuana,” Chin said Monday.
It “appears to be suspected marijuana”? For Beckford’s sake, I hope “suspected marijuana” doesn’t carry harsher penalties than “marijuana.”
