Astros’ Jordan Schafer to be arraigned on drug charges

25 Comments

Astros outfielder Jordan Schafer was arrested last month in Florida for possession of marijuana and Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle reports that his arraignment has been set for next Monday.

In addition to the initial third-degree marijuana possession felony Schafer is also being charged with drug paraphernalia possession, which is a misdemeanor.

According to the police report Schafer was arrested with 25.9 grams of marijuana when he pulled up next to a police car while holding a joint in the parking lot of a Cheesecake Factory, which probably warrants a third charge of first-degree stupidity.
