UGA Safety Suspended 4 Games For “Accidentally Eating Pot Brownies” For Breakfast On Spring Break
Georgia All-American safety Bacarri Rambo has been suspended for four games for failing a drug test, his high school coach said Thursday. A source close to the situation also confirmed to ESPN.com’s Mark Schlabach that Rambo’s suspension was drug-related. Alan Ingram, Rambo’s coach at Seminole County High School in Sanford, Fla., said he believes Rambo was a victim of circumstance. “Bacarri went down to Panama City Beach with some friends,” Ingram said. “One of the nights he went to bed before they did. He got up the next morning, was hungry and found some brownies on the table. He had some with some milk and told me, ‘I got high.’ The other guys got up and told him that the brownies were not for him. Apparently they were laced with marijuana. “I think that is the story. I think that is exactly what happened. Not many times would I say that, but he has never lied to me before.” Rambo was suspended for the Bulldogs’ opener against Boise State last season for an unnamed rules violation but still earned All-America honors while leading the SEC with eight interceptions.
