Nebraska’s Boaz Joseph arrested for marijuana possession

The Nebraska Cornhuskers have learned that defensive back Boaz Joseph was arrested last Thursday for possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia. A search of Joseph’s apartment led to the discovery of marijuana and a grinder.

According to the Journal Star, Joseph was in possession of 3.3 grams of marijuana at the time of his bust by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln police.

“Coach (Mike) Riley and athletics administration are aware of this incident,” a spokesman with the Nebraska Athletic Department said in a statement. “We have no additional comment at this time.”

The university provided no further comment.

The initial search came when an occupant of Joseph’s apartment reportedly attempted to have sneakers purchased and shipped to the home after purchasing them with a stolen credit card.

Joseph will not face jailtime for his missteps, but he will be facing fines.

The 21-year-old redshirt sophomore was arrested along with roommates Deandre Pippens and Ishmail Jackson. Jackson was also cited for possessing drug paraphernalia, while Pippens was arrested in connection to the fraud case.
