Four NC State Football Players Charged With Possession

Hot off the presses from ABC TV here in Raleigh — Jake Vermiglio, J.R. Sweezy, Markus Kuhn and George Bryan have been charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling for the use of a controlled substance.

NC State football players face drug charges

A search warrant filed by Raleigh police shows marijuana and drug paraphernalia was found in an apartment while four North Carolina State football players were inside.

Senior Offensive Lineman Jake Vermiglio, Redshirt Junior Defensive Tackle J.R. Sweezy, Redshirt Junior Defensive Tackle Markus Kuhn, and Redshirt Junior Tight End George Bryan are all named in the document.

A couple of interesting notes. This is Sweezy’s second encounter with the law in less than two months. Also, the apartment where the drugs were found was College Inn, a complex owned by The Wolfpack Club and directly associated with NC State.

Check back for more on this later. O’Brien will likely put out some sort of statement later in the day and I would expect suspensions (perhaps a dismissal for Sweezy) soon after.
