Default O.J. Mayo...another problem

I'ma big fan of O.J. but lately he's been knockin over refs... and now a new development.... USC be ready he might just be the T.O. of college basketball

What could be done about O.J.???

Mayo's marijuana citation dismissed by magistrate

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- A Cabell County magistrate dismissed a marijuana citation against Huntington High basketball star O.J. Mayo on Monday.

Magistrate Betty Wolford said she dismissed the citation at the request of Cabell County Prosecutor Chris Chiles. She referred questions to Chiles and Mayo's lawyer, Michael Woelfel, who did not immediately return telephone messages.

Mayo was among four males cited on misdemeanor marijuana possession charges by sheriff's deputies late Friday night.

Cabell County Sheriff's Deputy Doug Adams had said officers serving a search warrant at a house pulled over a Cadillac they deemed suspicious. Mayo was a passenger in the vehicle.

Wolford said the driver of the car, Marquis Dawson, pleaded guilty Monday while another passenger, Esau Johnson, had yet to appear in court. The fourth person cited is a juvenile.

Adams said Dawson had a small amount of marijuana on him and there was marijuana in a spare set of shoes in the back of the car.

Adams said Mayo was the only Huntington High basketball player in the vehicle.

Mayo, considered one of the nation's top prep players, has been named the state's boys basketball player of the year by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association. He transferred this season from Cincinnati's North College Hill to Huntington High, and signed a letter of intent in November to play next season at Southern California.

First thing, he did not knock over a ref. The ref flopped and he was found not responsible for what happened.

Second, his marijuana charge was dismissed. He was driving in a car that had some in it. How may of us could have been in the same situation. It doesnt make him a bad kid.

I don't even know him but I would assume he is actually a pretty good kid considering the way they are targeting him and still can't catch him dirty.

As aforementioned, the ref flopped and OJ was absolved of his punishment in that case after the school board looked at the video.

And in this incident the driver, who was not OJ, had weed on him, in the trunk, and glove box. Nobody claimed ownership of the weed so they charged all 4 of them but even still it's just a citation, not an arrest.

i'd say he is a pretty good kid to, but sometimes people just have bad days or get into situations they dont want to be in... i just think they are trying to get him in trouble b/c he is a good basketball player.
