Utah State player allegedly sells drugs to cop, faces charges

Well, that is not how you make a positive impression on the coaching staff. Utah State tight end Chris Copier has been suspended by the football program after a recent drug related arrest.

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Copier faces between one and 20 years behind bars after selling drugs to an undercover police officer.

Police charged Chris Copier for six counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, one count for distribution of or arranging to distribute a controlled substance and one more charge for a weapons offense.

After selling the drugs, Copier was pulled over and police allegedly found a quarter-pound of marijuana and 46 ecstasy pills inside his vehicle. When the search led to his home, Copier was found to be in possession of a handgun, about $1,600 in cash, and more drugs, including marijuana, mushrooms, and Xanex, per the Salt Lake Tribune.

Copier, who was released on $55,000, has a long legal battle ahead.
