Ole Miss backup quarterback Barry Brunetti was arrested on May 10, as first reported by the Memphis Commercial Appeal's Kyle Veazey. Brunetti was charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
Former Rebels running back/wide receiver Randall Mackey was also involved in the incident. Mackey allegedly shoved a police officer and was charged with simple assault. Officers entered Brunetti's apartment following an auto accident and, after noticing the smell of marijuana, discovered a grinder in the quarterback's room. He admitted to having recently smoked marijuana and was placed under arrest.
In a brief statement to the Commercial Appeal, Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze said, "We addressed this incident internally."
Brunetti, a senior, served as backup to Bo Wallace in 2012 and is expected to do the same this year. Last season, he completed 22-of-32 passes for 196 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed 60 times for 277 yards and three scores.
