Auburn QB Nick Marshall cited for marijuana possession

By Hunter Ford

Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall led the Tigers to an SEC championship and a BCS title game appearance in 2013 and was set to be a featured player at SEC Media Days next week.  So, to prepare for his big moment, he went cruising around in Georgia smoking some weed.

Reports state he had less than an ounce of the wacky, which seems to be very important because it is noted prominently in headlines.

According to reports, the Auburn quarterback was pulled over around 1 p.m. ET for a “possible” window tinting violation.  He was given a citation, but not arrested.  Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn is very disappointed.

Marshall is an upcoming senior at Auburn and is touted as a Heisman Trophy frontrunner for the 2014 season.  He began his playing days as a cornerback at Georgia but was dismissed from the Bulldog’s program after his freshman year for undisclosed violations of team rules.
