ATHENS (DawgNation) — Police were called to the dorm room of two Georgia football players just hours after the Bulldogs’ 17-16 loss to Vanderbilt Saturday. The reason? A resident assistant smelled pot.
Neither Natrez Patrick nor Roquan Smith — both starting inside linebackers — were arrested in the incident, which occurred at 9:14 p.m. Saturday. A search of Patrick’s dorm room “produced no marijuana of testable quantity,” according to police.
However, police said Patrick admitted to keeping marijuana in a hidden compartment built within a fake can of Arizona Strawberry Tea that was confiscated. Other discoveries police reported after securing a search warrant were a “green smoke buddy” (an air-filter device often used to masked the smell of marijuana when in use), tobacco gutted from Black N’ Mild cigars, several lighters and rolled up towels pushed up against door cracks, according to the incident report.
