Multiple media outlets are reporting that former Arkansas quarterback Mitch Mustain was arrested Tuesday night on suspicion of selling prescription narcotics to an undercover LAPD officer.
According to the LA County Sheriff’s Department website, Mustain was arrested at 8:10 p.m. on Tuesday. The Los Angeles Times is reporting Mustain faces a felony drug charge, and is currently free after posting $30,000 bail.
Mustain, 22, transferring to the University of Southern California after his freshman year at Arkansas in 2006. He started one game at quarterback for the Trojans last year in relief of injured starter Matt Barkley.
He had been on campus at USC where he was preparing for a “pro day” workout before NFL scouts in March.
Update: The LA Times is reporting that the district attorney’s office declined to file charges against Mustain due to the fact that he has no previous criminal record, and because the drug he allegedly sold to the undercover officer, “lisdexamfetamine dimesylate,” is not a controlled substance.
