Talking Bull: Better living through pharmacology

Yes ladies and gentlemen a Ball State player was busted stealing "male enhancement" (Boner) pills.

Report: Ball State Players Tried To Steal 'Male Enhancement Pills' - Hustle Belt
The Star Press' Zaleski reported earlier today that Newsome was suspended two games already stemming from a marijuana arrest, which was found during a traffic stop thanks to expired plates. I'm not sure where the boner pills fit into the equation, but there was an outstanding warrant for "conversion," which Zaleski writes can usually be written up in cases of shoplifting, so the theft might be older than this week.

I'm close to going mental at all the possibilities that this presents. But I am going to let this epiclly awsome bit of news sit for a big. It's like a fine wine, it needs to age.

This is the second time that Newsome has found himself in trouble recently. The Ohio State transfer got caugth with other "products" while driving in a car that had expired plates.

So there’s that. The Muncie Star Press reported that Newsome was pulled over on Sunday night/Monday morning for failure to signal a turn and police discovered an expired license plate on Newsome’s Jeep, a warrant was issued for a failure to appear charge, and upon further inspection of the vehicle, a small amount of what police believed to be marijuana. So Newsome’s Monday morning was significantly worse than yours, unless you finally got caught being someone’s heroin mule through the Texas countryside.

I guess the lesson here is don't always be thrilled when AQ level players transfer into your program. And if they do transfer in be sure to let your local pharmacy know.
