Jonathan Newsome’s arrest wasn’t first time cops found weed at his house

When Colts linebacker Jonathan Newsome was arrested Wednesday morning for possession of marijuana, we noted it wasn’t his first weed-related offense.

As it turns out, it wasn’t even his first weed-related incident this offseason.

According to Mike Wells of ESPN.com, Zionsville, Ind. police were also called to his home on Jan. 31, also for a noise complaint, and police found marijuana then as well. A friend of his was arrested for possession that morning.

Coupled with a suspension during his days at Ball State, there’s a pattern here: Newsome is frequently in places where marijuana also happens to be.

(Then again, so is every Denver Bronco and Seattle Seahawk, but that’s a different conversation for a different day.)

The Colts put out the usual statement Wednesday, saying they were aware, “but until we have had an opportunity to review the facts relevant to the case, it would be inappropriate for us to make a comment.”

Here’s a comment we feel like they could make without much controversy: Somebody should really tell Newsome to turn his stereo down and quit riding his motorcycle in the house.

    Our counrty is going to hell. Literally. Millennials won’t work, live in basements, refuse to pay their dues, surf the web, comment without educating themselves, believe everything they read on the internets, and now we have cops rummaging into someone’s house to steal someone’s weed and probably sell it.

    Meanwhile, there is billions of dollars of fresh revenue streams we’re ignoring to help fund programs/entities to help people in our society.

    Alchohol and tobacco (more dangerous than weed) = LEGAL

    Marijuana since 1937 = ILLEGAL

    Gee, I wonder if marijuana was legal in 1936 and then magically ILLEGAL in 1937 because of a recession in 1937 and the fact Mexicans came over the border for work with marijuana on them? lol

    Gee, I am so confused. How’s big pharma doing? What about private prisons in conjunction with “mandatory minimums”?

    How does this make sense today, folks?

    His fall guy was already locked up haven’t found his new one was in the process of interviews…

  13. syrnyg says: Feb 18, 2016 2:31 PM

    It looks like he listened to Chris Carter, and had that “fall guy” at his house the first time around, maybe he has another friend or can recycle the same guy for this time.

    They didnt find cocaine, heroine, or a dead body. They found weed, who cares……..

    Wonder if they’re going to hang a “Multiple drug offenses in the span of a month” banner

  17. metalman5150 says: Feb 18, 2016 3:24 PM

    Legalize it, already.

    Should not be wasting tax dollars to pay law enforcement to deal with weed.

    It doesn’t. Its the insanity of the broken system we live with.

    ___________
    He already used his fall guy with the first weed incident.

    Enough with the league’s ridiculous marijuana prohibition. Yes, I get that it’s part of “the rules” that all players should follow, but in 2016 it’s an anachronism.

    I’d bet everything I own over 80% of NFL players use pot atleast once or twice during the season. I would be surprised if half of the league didn’t use it 3+ times a week.. The NFL nerds to do like the NBA and get rid of the marijuana ban so it doesn’t leave a black eye on the sport and it’s players or teams.

    If you weren’t a pot head you would have a clear enough mind to know it isn’t.

    Chandler Jones thinks weed is for rookies.

    Calling all NFL players to Washington, SMOKE IN.
    Let Goodell suspend half the NFL and still have a season.
