The Syracuse football program received some bad news Friday night as senior wide receiver Marcus Sales was arrested, with his brother, on felony drug possession charges in Syracuse.â†µ
Sales, 21, of 362 Valley Drive, was in a car with his brother, Michael Sales Jr., 25, of the same address, when police stopped the vehicle for a traffic violation near Midland and Ballantyne avenues just before 9:45 p.m.â†µ
According to Syracuse police reports, the brothers were taken into custody after drugs and drug paraphernalia were found in their car after the vehicle was stopped for running a red light.â†µ
Sales, who caught three touchdown passes in the 36-34 victory against Kansas State in the Pinstripe Bowl, was going to enter the season as the Orange's play-making wide receiver. Fans will not find out Sales' eligibility fate anytime soon, but assume that it will not be good. More than likely, Sales will be kicked off the team or at best suspended for a long period of time.
