Journal Star confirmed with UNL police that #Huskers RB Maurice Washington was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia early Tuesday morning after strong odor of marijuana came from his residence.— Parker Gabriel (@HuskerExtraPG) June 4, 2019
Yes, Maurice Washington was cited for possession of drug accoutrements earlier today.
From a story at KOLN:
UNLPD said they were called to the University Suites, located at 1780 R Street, early Tuesday morning on a strong smell of marijuana.
The citation is for a misdemeanor. By itself, it probably wouldn’t be that huge a deal. In many other states, including Washington’s home state of California where marijuana is legal, it wouldn’t be a deal at all.
Unfortunately the citation comes at a time when Washington is already facing charges in California under the state’s revenge porn law and possession of child pornography. Both came from an incident in which he allegedly sent his ex-girlfriend a sexually explicit video.
Washington, 19, is also facing two charges — one a felony — in California stemming from an incident in which he allegedly sent an ex-girlfriend a years-old, sexually explicit video.
One would think Mr. Washington is done at Nebraska. We’ll see what happens and keep you updated.
