Laurence Maroney RB Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos running back Laurence Maroney (right) is wildly considered a big bust after being drafted in the first round by the New England Patriots and was shipped to the Denver Broncos where they had numerous injuries with his running backs. There instead of taking advantage of the situation averaged just 2.1 yards a carry on the season. Now, after his contract is up this offseason, he decided to go get arrested on unlawful gun and drug charges. Allegedly he was returning from a Rick Ross and Wiz Khalifa concert when police noticed him and some passengers in a car smoking some marijuana. He was apparently high and possessing a weapon, which is why he was arrested because he has a conceal and carry permit. His rep has released a statement saying he hasn't been charged with any crimes -- yet. More to come.
Mugshot Update: Worthy of a post all it's own is the amazing Laurence Maroney mugshot. Without further ado, here it is:
Update: Maroney wasn't charged for the gun in his possession, due to the fact that he has a conceal carry permit and no laws were violated, however, Maroney was officially charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession. You could say that this will hurt his chances of hooking with a team, but I think it's more likely his 2.1 yards per carry will keep him off of an NFL roster.
