Troubled Former USC QB Marinovich Jailed In Orange County
Posted: Monday, April 2, 2018 – 10:34 AM
The former Los Angeles Raiders quarterback with a history of drug- related arrests was arrested March 19 and released on bail the same day, according to the sheriff’s on-line records. He was arrested again on March 23 and remains in custody.
The website does not include arrest details, but Marinovich was sentenced to probation a year ago in lieu of 90 days in jail for an August 2016 arrest for wandering naked in an Irvine backyard with drugs and syringes, as reported in The Desert Sun.
He told the paper in August he had been sober for just over a year and played last year for the SoCal Coyotes developmental football team, throwing seven touchdowns in the September 3 season opener.
