Mississippi defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche has been charged with possession of marijuana after being hospitalized following a fall at an Atlanta hotel.
Police say the 21-year-old from Loganville, Georgia broke a hotel room window, walked about 15 feet, climbed over a wall and fell roughly 15 feet late Saturday night.
A police report said a double pane window in the room had been busted and the room was in “complete disarray.” The report also said there were “approximately 7 rolled marijuana cigarettes” in plain sight that police linked to Nkemdiche.
The report says the police investigation is ongoing.
Nkemdiche’s status is unclear for the Jan. 1 Sugar Bowl game between Ole Miss (9-3) and Oklahoma State (10-2). Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze is scheduled to address the media before Monday’s practice.
