Former Raider Jamarcus Russell's Fall From Grace Takes A Criminal Turn

New, 2 comments

I have to admit, while I certainly wouldn't wish this on Jamarcus Russell, I find myself a little less than surprised by it. Apparently Russell was arrested today for possession of a controlled substance. The former Raider #1 pick was busted with codeine syrup in some kind of undercover investigation. He was released on bail this afternoon and is scheduled to appear in court on July 20.


Why does it seem like some of the biggest busts in the league end up going down for some kind of stupid criminal action?
