Mississippi guard Marshall Henderson was found in possession of a small amount of marijuana and cocaine during a traffic stop in May; according to the Oxford, Mississippi chief of police.
The bad boy of all college basketball bad boys Marshall Henderson was suspended by Ole Miss indefinitely. CBS Sports’ Gary Parrish reported that the issue concerns a failed drug test. Parrish was told Marshall Henderson’s future at Ole Miss is “genuinely up in the air.”
The Rebels suspension was the result of multiple failed drug tests. Henderson has one season of eligibility remaining.
The Wall Street Journal cited a police report in which Marshall Henderson was pulled over on May 4 and authorities smelled marijuana in his car. Henderson gave the officer a bag with a small amount of marijuana, and a police dog then found “a small amount of what appeared to be cocaine.”
Henderson was only cited for lacking proof of insurance, and a police report said, “The district attorney wouldn’t prosecute if the bag contained less than one-tenth of a gram of cocaine,” according to the Journal.
