More Details On Michigan State's Derrick Nix And His April 3 Arrest For Marijuana Possession

After a few days without any information, we've got some more details on Michigan State basketball player Derrick Nix and his arrest on April 3. Joe Rexrode posted an update on Monday with some more details on the arrest, courtesy of the official police report from the East Lansing Police.

East Lansing Police released the report today on the April 3 arrest of MSU basketball player Derrick Nix, who had a joint with 0.6 of a gram of marijuana confiscated, told an officer he had smoked earlier in the night and later agreed to a blood test and tested positive for marijuana.

Nix took the sobriety test and wasn't able to complete the balance or counting tests as instructed. He missed some numbers while counting backwards. Nix was pulled over when made a left turn at a red light at 12:20 a.m. on April 3. Nix admitted he had smoked earlier in the night so for Michigan State, they might have all the information they need.

As it stands, Nix is suspended indefinitely, but figured to be a factor in the team's plans next season before the incident. He averaged 8.1 points and 2.8 rebounds this past season.
