Missouri defensive end and projected first round pick Shane Ray had a run in with the law just four days ahead of the NFL draft early Monday morning.
According to the police report from the Missouri Highway Patrol Ray was pulled over for a failure to drive in the right lane of a two way highway and was arrested and cited for possessing 35 grams or less of marijuana.
According to multiple reports on Twitter Ray was cooperative with police and has since been released. The occurance happened at approximately six in the morning on April 27 in Cooper county Missouri.
No one else was in the car with Ray at the time of his arrest.
With the arrest questions will begin to swirl about whether or not his draft stock will drop. With as many talented defensive ends in this class it could certainly hurt his case. Under the NFL’s new drug policy even though Ray hasn’t been formally drafted he could enter stage one of the new policy. If he were to have an additional drug incident he would face a four game ban.
Ray was named 2014 SEC defensive player of the year leading Missouri with a school record 14.5 sacks in his junior campaign.
