Dolphins Cut Leon Orr Mid-Practice After He Gets Arrested For Weed & Kush Syrup
Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Leon Orr possibly just ended his own career prematurely after he got arrested on Tuesday and charged with a number of crimes.
“Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Leon Orr was arrested Tuesday and faces charges for possession of marijuana and a controlled substance, according to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies stopped Orr Tuesday afternoon on eastbound Interstate 75 near the toll plaza, not far from Collier Boulevard, because his black BMW appeared to have illegally tinted windows, according to an arrest report.
After checking Orr, deputies began searching his car. There they found a gray backpack on the front passenger seat floor board. Inside the backpack deputies found “what appeared to be three glass vials containing what appeared to be marijuana wax,” the report stated. They also found “a green plastic bottle containing a red liquid inside,” according to the report. The front label of the bottle read “kush syrup” and the back label said the substance contained cannabis, the report stated.
On the front driver’s door map pocket deputies found an additional bottle, this one orange in color, with similar labels, according to the report.
Deputies tested the substance in the green bottle and results came back positive for THC, according to the report. The wax substance also tested positive for marijuana, the report stated.”
Head coach Adam Gase heard the news and what he was arrested for and couldn’t wait, so he cut Orr mid-practice on Wednesday.
The Dolphins found out about Leon Orr’s arrest during practice and promptly cut him, Adam Gase just said.
