It was reported on Wednesday that Marshall Henderson was suspended for a violation of team rules by Ole Miss, and it was speculated that it was for a failed drug test. While that has yet to be confirmed by the university of Henderson himself, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal, it may also include a traffic stop in May where police found marijuana and cocaine in the vehicle that Henderson was driving...
"Henderson was pulled over May 4 on suspicion of speeding, and Oxford Police officer Shane Fortner smelled marijuana in Henderson’s vehicle, according to the police report. Henderson gave Fortner a bag containing “a small nugget of marijuana,” according to Fortner’s report, and a search by a police dog turned up a clear plastic bag that contained “a small amount of what appeared to be cocaine,” a report from another officer, Mark Hodges, said.
Hodges’s report notes that the district attorney wouldn’t prosecute if the bag contained less than one-tenth of a gram of cocaine.
Henderson was cited for no proof of liability insurance and given a court date of May 15, Fortner’s report said. It wasn’t immediately clear how the citation was adjudicated. No other charges were filed against Henderson."
