Tucker said the arrest occurred after a traffic stop by a convenience store located near Pearl River Community College. Deputies found marijuana and paraphernalia-type items, he said.
It appears Favre is the nephew of the NFL's career passing leader Brett Favre, but officials could not confirm the relationship.
Favre, who transferred away from MSU to get more playing time at Pearl River Community College, is the nephew of famous football player Brett Favre. Favre has one year of eligibility remaining.
