The Bowling Green Daily News reports on its website Western Kentucky senior fullback Kadeem Jones was arrested on a charge of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs in Bowling Green July 13th.
According to a Bowling Green Police arrest citation, the 21-year-old Jones of Dundee, FL was arrested while sitting in a parked car near Campus Suites Apartments while officers were investigating a loud music complaint.
When officers approached the vehicle, they smelled a strong odor of burnt marijuana. Jones and a passenger Andrew Jackson told officers they were smoking marijuana while Jones was driving and had discarded the marijuana before parking the vehicle.
It's not known at this time if Andrew Jackson is the one who plays linebacker for WKU, nor was that person arrested. A WKU spokesman says the school is aware of the situation and is gathering information.
Jones is scheduled to appear in court August 5, the same day WKU begins fall practice. Jones rushed for 84 yards and had three touchdowns last season, along with catching 14 passes for 180 yards and three scores. Jones missed spring practice with a foot injury.
