Three Pitt Football Players Arrested In Heroin Drug Bust
People especially college athletes have got to smarten up and do better. A local Pittsburgh CBS affiliate is reporting that three Pitt football players were arrested and detained in a Oakland, Pennsylvania Heroin bust.
Police, undercover officers and SWAT members raided a Oakland, Pa., home at around 10:30 p.m. and seized 20 bags of heroin, a bong and a grinder. The raid came after an investigation that led to undercover agents purchasing heroin from Darnell Reed-Young. Reed-Young was arrested before police raided the home.
The three were identified as 20-year-old Pitt linebacker Eric Williams, 21-year-old Pitt tight end Andrew Carswell, and 21-year-old Pitt defensive linemen Khaynin Mosley-Smith.
Pitt head coach Paul Chryst announced the players have been suspended from the team immediately and released a statement regarding his disappointment.
We have strict and clear standards regarding these types of behaviors,” Chryst said. “What has occurred with these three young men does not represent the standards of our program or university.”
