NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma guard Terrell Everett will be arraigned April 19 for a misdemeanor marijuana possession citation he received last week.
Everett, 21, was cited for marijuana possession March 11 after security guards called police and reported smelling marijuana coming from an apartment at the University Commons Apartments, according to police records obtained by The Oklahoma Daily newspaper. When police arrived shortly before midnight, Everett handed over a burnt marijuana cigarette and allowed Officer Marcus Savage to enter his apartment, according to the records.
Savage then "observed a portion of a compressed block of marijuana" on top of the television, according to records. Police confiscated the marijuana, but did not take Everett into custody.
A day earlier, Everett led Oklahoma with 14 points in a 69-63 loss to Nebraska in the Big 12 tournament quarterfinals in Dallas. The senior had 21 points and 11 assists to lead the Sooners in an 82-74 upset loss Thursday to Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the first round of the NCAA tournament that would be his final game at Oklahoma.
Playing mostly at point guard instead of his natural wing position, Everett averaged 12.7 points and led the Big 12 with 6.9 assists per game this season. He also committed 116 turnovers, an average of four per game.
Everett and former Oklahoma point guard Drew Lavender were cited for possession of marijuana and public intoxication in April 2005, but charges were later dropped due to a lack of evidence.
Lavender transferred to Xavier in June. "
What should be upsetting is not that these kids are getting caught, but that as is the case with Bomar, they are getting caught TWICE.
