    Default Marinovich arrested... again

    Cops: Former Football Star Tucked Drugs and Ran
    Posted Aug 29th 2007 1:22PM by TMZ Staff
    Filed under: Celebrity Justice, Train Wrecks, Talk Sports

    Former USC great, NFL flop, and not-that-bad Arena Football star Todd Marinovich was arrested this weekend after cops say he was hiding almost a gram of methamphetamine, a syringe and a spoon in his guitar case.

    According to sources, Marinovich was skateboarding near the Newport Pier in Orange County -- where boarding is strictly prohibited -- when police approached him. Cops say a frightened Marinovich then took off, leading them on a short chase. Cops caught up with the former QB, who was never much of a scrambler, hiding in a carport six blocks away.

    Todd has nine prior drug-related cases in Orange County, and was on probation for a previous drug conviction.

    Marinovich appeared in a Newport Beach court yesterday, where he plead not guilty to three misdemeanor charges. He will remain in custody until the Sept. 6 hearing.

    Nine prior drug-related cases. Wow.

    Is this new? I swear I read almost the EXACT same article about him (skateboard and all) a couple years ago...

    If you are in your late 30's and still running from the cops on your skateboard, it's time to take a good look in the mirror and ask yourself: "What the fuck am I doing with my life?"

    I'm not sure what's worse...nine priors or skateboarding at the beach at 38 years of age!

    Ya know something? At first I was going to say something along the lines of "Hey, if you can still do it at that age, good for you." And then I thought about it a little further and concluded that "Shit-that is fairly fucked-up behavior."

    OLO nailed it about the "adulthood" issues. Holy smokes...

    I remember reading an article in SI back in the eighties. His dad was "grooming"
    him to be some kind of ROBO quarterback.

    Monitored everything he ate .

    He was never allowed to eat things such as Oreos or cheeseburgers.

    This guy was FUBAR from the word GO. All that "robo QB" stuff as a kid. I got to think his upbringing was dysfunctional with a capital D. I'll never forget the playoff game between the Raiders/Chiefs where he was crying on the sidelines after throwing what seemed like his 100th interception. I felt sorry for him because it seem like his whole life was set up for that moment and he was wilting before the world's eyes.

    Not sure I would call him a USC great either...he certainly wouldn't make my list of the top 5 USC QB's of all time. If I had to do it:

    1. Matt Leinart
    2. Carson Palmer
    3. Rodney Peete
    4. Paul McDonald
    5. Pat Haden or John David Booty

    That an impressive list for the collegiate ranks. 1 and 2 aren't doing to bad in the NFL either. Palmer is the toast of Cincinnati these days
