I don’t care how much talent you have, it can all be taken away with one mistake. Missouri running back Damarea Crockett is finding that out the hard way. Just hours after he broke all types of rushing records against the Tennessee Vols, Crockett was caught smoking weed in the campus parking lot at 4am.
“After putting up 225 YARDS on Tennessee on Saturday (breaking the Mizzou freshman single season rushing record and single game rushing record) … cops say the 18-year-old was busted smoking weed in a campus parking lot.
He was taken into custody around 4:17 AM on Sunday morning for possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana.
As one law enforcement source put it — students often go to this particular parking lot to smoke weed. An officer was doing a routine check and saw the fire from the smoking session inside of Crockett’s car.
Chad Moller, the Associate Athletic Director at Mizzou, said the team is “aware of the incident and are handling it internally.”
No word from the school yet on whether Crockett will suit up on Friday against the Arkansas Razorbacks.
