Michigan Sportswriter Charged With Growing Marijuana
It’s not just athletes like Michael Phelps who are getting into trouble with weed these days, one Grand Rapids, Michigan sportswriter is getting into the act as well.
Sports columnist David Mayo was charged with “manufacture of more than 20 but less than 200 plants, a seven-year felony, and also maintaining a drug house, a two-year high-court misdemeanor.”
He is cooperating with police, and his lawyer has said the marijuana plants were for personal use. With the Michigan economy being as bad as it is though, maybe he should have considered selling.
According to the Grand Rapids Press, “Mayo has been employed at The Press since 1985 and has covered collegiate and professional sports, including the World Series and Super Bowl. He specializes in boxing coverage and has traveled the country to report on the career of Floyd Mayweather. A native of Kirby, Ark., he is a member of the Boxing Writers Association of America.”
Mayo also writes a blog called Mayo’s Clinic for the Press.
