Cops Punish Alex Magee For Weed, Expired TagMay 9th, 2011
Is it so hard to keep the marijuana out of the car?
Apparently it is for Bucs defensive end Alex Magee. He was slapped by Tampa cops today for driving with a license plate tag expired more than six months and for misdemeanor possession of marijuana, so reports Victoria Lim of Bright House Sports Network.
Magee’s full name – Arcilla Alexander Magee – was driving his 2009 Dodge Charger when he was stopped on East Kennedy Blvd. and North Nebraska Ave. at 1:13pm, the report says. The officer smelled marijuana and searched the vehicle. The investigation turned up a “misdemeanor amount of field test positive marijuana”, according to the report.
While the Bucs can’t punish Magee during a lockout, one might think the organization is not going to tolerate a drug charge from a bottom-of-the-roster guy, especially one that would be in “the room,” as Raheem Morris calls it, with all the precious young defensive linemen.
Just 24 years old in April, Magee has three NFL seasons in the books and made a huge play in the Bucs’ January win in New Orleans.
Stylez White’s potential future with the Bucs just got a little brighter.
