When word emerged that former Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell had been arrested in his home for possession of a controlled substance (codeine-laced cough syrup), we expected some interesting details to follow.
The process has begun.
The Associated Press reports that the arrest results from a two-month investigation, and that more arrests could be coming.
Per the AP, Mobile (Ala.) County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Lori Myles said that the investigation didn’t initially target Russell. His name and home address, however, came up “several times.”
The substance taken from Russell’s home is being tested to determine the amount. The process could take five-to-seven days.
Meanwhile, the latest AP report suggests that a trial will be held on July 20. Sorry, but this isn’t Hollywood; it’ll be an initial court appearance, with trial to follow at a later date.
