Arizona Wildcats safety facing multiple drug-related felonies; dismissed from team


Another college football player is in hot water, but this time it is for much more than barking at a dog. Arizona Wildcats safety Patrick Onwuasor was charged with four felonies stemming from a home investigation in April. Three of the charges Onwuasor is facing are drug-related.

The exact charges that Onwuasor is facing are possession of a narcotic drug for sale, possession of marijuana for sale, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony drug offense and possession of narcotics paraphernalia.

As you would expect, Wildcats head coach Rich Rodriguez says that the sophomore, who was expected to compete for a starting job, has been dismissed from the team.

Last season, Onwuasor played in 12 games and had 36 tackles.
