3 Pitt Football Players ‘Detained’ in Heroin Drug Bust

mugThis is definitely a good look for the Pittsburgh football team. According to Pittsburgh’s local CBS affiliate station, three players (two of which are starters) were detained in an Oakland, Pa. drug bust. The players who were detained were Drew Carswell, Khaynin Mosley-Smith and Eric Williams.

According to SB Nation:

Police, undercover officers and SWAT members raided an Oakland, Pa., home at around 10:30 p.m. and seized 20 bags of heroin, a bong and a grinder. The raid came after an investigation that led to undercover agents purchasing heroin from Darnell Reed-Young. Reed-Young was arrested before police raided the home.

Pitt’s head coach Paul Chryst already announced that all three players are suspended from the team.

“We have strict and clear standards regarding these types of behaviors,” Chryst said. “What has occurred with these three young men does not represent the standards of our program or university.” 

Probably not a great way to head into the new season, huh?
