In other words Todd Marinovich is doing Todd Marinovich things. The former NFL quarterback, now 47, has a long history of drug problems dating back to his playing days. On Monday he was arrested in possession of marijuana, naked in someone's backyard, via The Orange County Register:
The 47-year-old was cited for trespassing, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana, Irvine police Commander Mike Hallinan said Monday. Police suspect that the substance was methamphetamine, he said, but what was discovered will undergo testing.
About 9 p.m. Friday, police received a complaint call.
“The caller stated that there was a naked person on Venta Spur Trail,” said Hallinan, referring to a paved bike and walking path that runs along a greenbelt between homes.
Hallinan said that Marinovich, an Irvine resident, was in a backyard of a home on Bluecoat: “He was carrying the items in a brown bag.”
See the whole Johnny Manziel thing has been done before. He was a college star at USC before playing only two seasons in the NFL for the Raiders before being cut due to drugs.
It's like we've taken a time machine to the future and caught a glimpse of a middle aged Johnny Football.
