Alabama football player arrested on possession of marijuana with intent to sell and loaded gun
Tony Mitchell is one of the best young prospects in the country who landed at Alabama over Texas A&M, Georgia and Auburn.
The four star prospect was busted with a significant amount of marijuana, a set of scales, a loaded handgun and a large amount of cash.
Mitchell played at Thompson High School in Alabaster was charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to sell and/or deliver. There was a passenger with Mitchell who was arrested for the loaded hand gun as well as the marijuana with intent to sell and/or deliver.
Mitchell was arrested in the Florida panhandle in Holmes County.
“During the stop, deputies detected the odor of burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle,” the Holmes County sheriff’s department wrote. “When asked if there was marijuana in the vehicle, Mitchell produced a baggie of marijuana from the passenger floorboard. Both Mitchell and Lewis were taken into custody.
“A search of the vehicle produced an additional significant amount of marijuana, a set of scales, a loaded handgun between the passenger seat and center console, and a large amount of cash.”
Alabama’s first practice starts on Monday, so it will be interesting to see what Alabama does with Mitchell.
