In Scott Pioli’s former place of employment, players generally stayed on the right side of the law.

In his new NFL city, a holdover player has likely doomed his chances of sticking with the team by getting arrested.

Tight end Michael Merritt was busted on Thursday morning (http://www.clickorlando.com/sports/18650346/detail.html) in Orlando for suspicion of marijuana possession.

A police officer allegedly saw Merritt rolling a marijuana cigarette while sitting in his car. When Merritt saw the officer, he put the item in his mouth.

The officer then ordered Merritt to get out of the car and “spit it out.”
Merritt complied, and then allegedly said, “All this for a little bit of weed?”
A search uncovered three grams of marijuana in Merritt’s shoe. (Apparently, it wasn’t a turkey bag.)

Per league rules, Merritt technically can’t be released or otherwise disciplined by the team as a result of the arrest. Instead, discipline would be imposed only by the league, pursuant to the substance abuse policy.
In most cases, marijuana possession results in a one-game suspension, after a conviction or guilty plea.

If I was going to smoke weed in the NFL I would do it AT HOME with people that I know

If you invite Saggysack over, be sure to confiscate his cameraphone.

I think he was also making a "Pioli looks like the guy from the Sopranos (James Gandolfini) so he would get anyone who pissed him off whacked" reference.

Good thing Johnny Law got this dangerous criminal off the street. Just imagine the number of kids he could’ve perverted with that extra dube and a half of wacky tobacky stuffed in his sock.

Wow...what a loss for the franchise. I'm going to go home and take his poster down off my wall.

Wasn't this guy a fire fighter, or at least had made plans to go into the FD if he didn't get drafted?

You'd think he would be a bit more law-abiding.

Bye Bye Mike Merritt. I had high hopes for you but I dont want problem childs that do drugs like you and LJ on our team.

Just to think we kept this guy and John Paul Foschi over Michael Allan blows my mind.

For he to get in trouble with the law this early and being a late round draft pick, his career is probably over, unless the Raiders or some team full of thugs were to sign him.

He was about to drive. I think that's a problem. I'm all for people doing what they want, but I don't want them endangering people. Just imagine if he crushed in the skulls of some kids playing in the street because he was stoned. Then it would be a big deal.

What are you talking about? He's still on the Chiefs website!

He just got a negroplasty apparently. He's now known as DVD. He just felt like he couldn't make it in the NFL as a white guy.

They put out fires, not arrest people. What does having to pour water on a fire have to do with being a law abiding citizen?

Why would they arrest a person for 3 grams of pot? I figured that would be a misdemeanor and the cop would just write him a citation. Maybe they have tougher laws in Florida.
