Fourth member of Bucs organization arrested in 2 months
The long arm of the law has reached out and – what else – snagged a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.
In a repeat of something that is becoming all too familiar, a member of the Bucs was arrested on Monday when Alex Magee was cited with marijuana possession and driving with an expired license plate, according to the Tampa Tribune.
Per the report, he is the fourth member of the organization to be arrested in a little more than two months. Pro scouting director Shelton Quarles and Jay Kaiser, the assistant to coach Raheem Morris, were pinched for DUI. Cornerback Aqib Talib faces felony assault charges in Dallas.
Magee was pulled over Monday afternoon in a 2009 Dodge Charger and police allegedly smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle. A small amount of the drug was reportedly found during a search of the vehicle.
Magee, a third-round draft pick in 2009 from Purdue, was acquired from the Bucs in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs last season.
