Ball State starting defensive end Jonathan Newsome can’t seem to stay out of trouble, and it turns out he is doing a tremendous job of embarrassing himself along the way. According to The Star Press, Newsome has been suspended for the first two games of the season after he was arrested Monday morning and charged with possession of marijuana during a routine traffic stop. In checking their records, officers found that Newsome’s license plate was expired and that he had an outstanding warrant on a charge of conversion.

Newsome is already due in court on Monday as a result of the conversion charge, which reportedly stemmed from a shoplifting incident that involved fellow teammate Toney Williams. That’s where things get really entertaining, as the Star Press’s Doug Zaleski pointed out:

This will cause some locker room jokes. #Ball State players Jonathan Newsome, Toney Williams tried to shoplift “male enhancement pills”

When you hear that a college athlete gets arrested for possession of marijuana, your initial thought might be “typical college kid.” When you hear that the same athlete got arrested for trying to boost some Viagra — not so much.

On a side note, this has been a week for the record books here at LBS. Never before have we been able to write two posts about separate issues involving male enhancement pills in the same week. How about a round of applause for the sports community?
