Just over a week after the Buffalo Bills elected to pick up his fifth-year option for 2015, defensive tackle Marcell Dareus has run into legal problems.
According to Travis Leder of WVUA-TV in Tuscaloosa, Ala., Dareus was arrested last night in Cleburne County for being in possession of synthetic marijuana.
Dareus was reportedly arrested by a state patrol officer and released within an hour of his arrest.
Dareus made the Pro Bowl for the first time last season for Buffalo. However, he was also benched by the Bills for the first half of their game against the New England Patriots in December for a violation of team rules.
Dareus recorded 71 tackles and 7.5 sacks for Buffalo last season.
UPDATE 10:40 p.m. ET: Per Leder, Alabama State Troopers say Dareus was arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance and felony possession of drug paraphernalia. He was initially pulled over on Interstate 20 (the freeway connecting Birmingham, Ala. and Atlanta) for speeding.
So it is official all three of the wanna-be super-friends are bad decision makers. We all know of Aldon's insanity, Von Miller's exploits are known, and now Dareus is booked for synthetic pot lol.
Going to be interesting to see the NFL dole out the punishment for Aldon and Dareus. This also once again points to how blatantly terrible the NFL's drug testing is, a player obviously knows when to expect testing and when they can get away with it, it is just a matter of luck and stupidity on both the NFL and the player that they get caught.
