Toke Like A Champion Today: Notre Dame TE Mike Ragone Busted For Pot Possession

Notre Dame tight end Mike Ragone and a woman who was traveling with him were arrested and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession by the Indiana State Police after being pulled over Saturday evening. Notre Dame director of football media relations Brian Hardin confirmed on Monday.

From The Journal Gazette (via College Football Talk):

State trooper Tony Lomonaco smelled marijuana and found two small bags of marijuana in the woman’s purse, Galaviz said.

Because the amount found was less than 30 grams, Ragone, 22, and the woman were charged with misdemeanor possession, according to Galaviz.

“Coach (Brian) Kelly is aware of the situation and feels it is a serious matter,” Hardin said. “He has spoken with Mike, but any team-related action that may be forthcoming would be handled internally.”

Jeez, when contemplating the state of Notre Dame football, perennial underachievement fueled by a legacy of a once-proud and decorated football program now reduced to borderline irrelevancy usually come to mind, not players on the team stupidly getting busted with weed in their car. Times they are a-changin’, I guess.
