Darian Claiborne hid marijuana and prescription pills in a giant Hershey’s Kiss ornament inside of a friend’s car … this according to a police report obtained by TMZ Sports. 19-year-old Claiborne — a linebacker who’s tied for the team lead in tackles — was arrested on December 22 in Texas.
According to cops, Claiborne was riding in a car without front plates … and 2 of the 3 occupants were NOT wearing seatbelts. During the stop, the officer at the scene says he smelled pot coming from the passenger side, where Claiborne was sitting … though Claiborne insisted the odor was from a Black & Mild cigar. The cops searched the car and found a “red plastic Hershey’s kiss ornament” in the center console … and inside, it contained a small bag of weed and 5 white and blue capsules.
According to the report, Claiborne said the pills were Adderall that his roommate had given him to help cram for finals. Claiborne did not have a prescription. The cop says he also found a partially smoked blunt located in a shoe found on the floorboard of the car.
Claiborne was eventually arrested and booked for possession of a dangerous drug and possession of marijuana. He was released on a $6,000 bond. Claiborne has already been punished by Texas A&M, which has suspended him from playing in the Chick-fil-A Bowl against Duke
