    Tyler Smith, among other Tenn players, charged with gun possession

    4 Tenn. basketball players facing gun charges - College Basketball - Rivals.com

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Four Tennessee basketball players, including starting senior forward Tyler Smith, were charged with gun possession and other counts after a Friday traffic stop.
    The Knoxville Police Department said Smith, 23, junior point guard Melvin Goins, 22, junior center Brian Williams, 22, and sophomore guard Cameron Tatum, 21, were arrested during a traffic stop for speeding near Tennessee’s campus.

    According to a police report, officers smelled marijuana coming from the car and found a handgun with an altered serial number, a bag of marijuana and an open container of alcohol. Tatum was driving.
    Officers could not determine whether any of the players were under the influence of marijuana, though the strong odor suggested marijuana had recently been smoked in the car, the police report said.
    Tatum was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and having an open container of alcohol. Smith was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm with an altered serial number, which is a felony. Goins and Williams both face gun and drug possession charges.
    Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl said in a statement that the team takes such matters seriously.
    “We are still gathering information. Once the appropriate authorities have provided us with all of the facts, we will act accordingly,” Pearl said in the statement.
    It was not immediately clear if any of the players had attorneys.
    The Volunteers won at Memphis 66-59 on Saturday afternoon and face Charlotte in Knoxville on Wednesday.

    A felony charge there as well for Smith, with the altered serial number.

    Has to suck having 1/3 or so of your team get busted at the same time.

    Smith is now finished. If he is charged he is looking at prison time. He will never play college or pro ball again.

    I can't stand to watch Tennessee basketball for one sole reason: Bruce Pearl.

    Re: Tyler Smith, among other Tenn players, charged with gun possession

    I can't believe any of them were smoking pot. I mean afterall, the NCAA and the universities both do extensive drug testing.


    Walking on water is easy. Just do it in December when it's frozen.

    Tyler Smith arrested

    Senior forward Tyler Smith among 4 Tennessee Volunteers players facing gun, drug charges - ESPN

    4 Vols Bball players (including former Hawkeye Tyler Smith) arrested in a car with sack of marijuana, an open container, AND and illegal gun. Sounds like all 4 are being charged with gun and drug possession for now (I guess no one wanted to spill the beans on who owned what).

    So is that referring to Smith or Pearl?
