Former USC and Raiders quarterback Todd Marinovich was arrested in California twice last week on undisclosed charges and remains in jail, The Desert Sun reported Sunday.
Marinovich was arrested March 19 and released after posting bail. He was arrested again on March 23 and is still in custody. According to jail records, the former quarterback is expected to be released May 3. No further details have been released on why he was arrested.
The 48-year-old landed back in jail in the middle of a two-year probation, which he received after his August 2016 arrest. He made headlines after he was found naked in another person’s backyard in Irvine, Calif. Police said Marinovich was carrying a brown bag with methamphetamine, marijuana, syringes, a marijuana pipe and his wallet.
He pleaded guilty to five misdemeanor counts including public nudity, drug possession and trespassing and received a stayed 90-day jail sentence.
Marinovich had a strong start to his football career as USC’s quarterback and was selected by the Los Angeles Raiders in 1991 in the first round of the draft. He only played eight games over the course of two seasons with the Raiders before falling out of the NFL amid concerns about substance-abuse issues. He later played in the Canadian and Arena leagues.
