Jacksonville State senior RB Washaun Ealey was arrested Wednesday morning on drug charges and will miss the team’s season opener against Chattanooga. Jacksonville State senior running back Washaun Ealey was arrested on drug possession charges Wednesday and subsequently suspended for the Gamecocks’ home opener Saturday. He was charged with second-degree marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia and released. Both charges are misdemeanors. The incident was first reported by the Anniston Star.

I spoke with Warren Koegel athletics director who released this statement, “This is a violation of team policy and he’s suspended for this game against Chattanooga, and we’re going through the proper channels according to the policy.”

This is the second arrest for Ealey, who was charged in a hit-and-run incident in August 2010.

“Obviously this is a concern, and we’re dealing with it,” Koegel added. “He will not play.”

The incident started when police searched Ealey’s residence after receiving a noise complaint. The senior was formerly the starting running back for Georgia, but transferred prior to last season and rushed for 1,082 yards. He obviously likes putting money down the  toilet, because he is pissing his chances away at playing in the NFL.
