Today in Timely Headlines: UL-Lafayette Football Players Nabbed for Weed Violation

As we all wait for an athlete to mistakenly announce his love of weed via Twitter on this day, 4/20, we've got this story to keep us company for the time being. Four football players were arrested for alleged cultivation of marijuana, which is a felony. Details via The Advertiser: ↵
↵⇥Junior linebacker Devon Lewis-Buchanan, sophomore quarterback Blaine Gautier, sophomore cornerback Rodney Gillis and junior safety Chris Richard were booked at 7:04 p.m. Monday into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center. ↵⇥

↵⇥All but Richard had been released as of Tuesday morning at 6:30 a.m. on $20,000 bond. ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥According to Louisiana law, penalties for cultivation or selling or possession with intent to distribute less than 60 pounds of marijuana include five to 30 years in prison and/or a $50,000 fine. For 60 pounds up to 2,000 pounds it's a fine of $50,000-$100,000. ↵⇥

↵Of course, we have no idea exactly how much of the alleged green was around, so there's no word on what kind of penalty they might face. Also, there's been no comment from coach Rickey Bustle. Still, you've got to appreciate some incredible timing on the part of these four football players. ↵
