Iowa State defensive end Willie Scott suspended indefinitely
[dropcap]I[/dropcap]owa State defensive end Willie Scott, who started 13 games last season, has been suspended indefinitely.
According to a report police, Iowa State University police stopped a 2002 Nissan Altima that Scott was driving for a headlight violation. An officer smelled “a strong odor emanating from the vehicle” and found a substance believed to be marijuana.
The report says that an officer noticed that Scott “had a green leafy substance located on his lap, consistent with the appearance of marijuana.” A glass jar containing 0.1 grams of a “green leafy substance” also was found. The report adds Scott tested positive for THC, a Schedule III controlled substance.
Scott, a junior from Orlando, Fla., made 37 tackles in 2012.
“It’s an on-going process,” Rhoads told the media. “It hasn’t worked its way through yet.”
Rhoads said that Scott has been suspended from competition, but will continue to practice and will play in the April 20 spring game.
