Blog: Smell of marijuana leads to search of player’s room; no arrest made

On the same day that Georgia announced the suspension of three football players for reportedly failing a drug test, university police responded Tuesday night to a complaint of the smell of marijuana coming from another player’s dorm room.

Another resident of Rooker Hall complained around 9:30 p.m., and a responding officer noticed the smell of burning marijuana coming from Room 104.

Bulldogs linebacker Reuben Faloughi allowed police to the search his room, according to a police report. A woman was in the room, but the redshirt sophomore from Martinez told police that his roommate was not home at the time.

Police searched, but found no contraband and made no arrests.

Georgia tailbacks Isaiah Crowell, Carlton Thomas and Ken Malcome are suspended for Saturday’s game against New Mexico State. The Associated Press reported they failed school-administered drug tests.

Georgia senior associate athletic director Claude Felton said this afternoon that coach Mark Richt is aware of the Tuesday night incident.
