Quote:
Former USC and Los Angeles Raiders quarterback Todd Marinovich, who has been bedeviled with drug problems, today pleaded not guilty to felony and misdemeanor charges stemming from an arrest Sunday in Newport Beach.

Police said they observed Marinovich, 38, skateboarding with a guitar case in hand about 1:15 a.m. Sunday near the Newport Pier boardwalk. Skateboarding is not allowed on the boardwalk, and Marinovich fled to a nearby home's carport.

When police found Marinovich there, they searched him and discovered a small amount of methamphetamine, a metal spoon and a hypodermic needle, said Newport Beach Police Sgt. Evan Sailor.

I think it's beyond the point of being sad. He has had so many chances, but he just doesn't want to change. At this point you just shake your head in pity.

Todd Marinovich pleads guilty to drug charges and naked trespassing


Former Raiders quarterback Todd Marinovich pleaded guilty to a collection of misdemeanor charges, after his latest drug-related arrest found him naked in a strangerís backyard.

According to Kelly Puente of the Orange County Register, Marinovich pleaded guilty to five counts including misdemeanor public nudity, drug and trespassing charges.

He was sentenced to serve 90 days in jail, but that was suspended pending the completion of a six-month stint in a rehab facility and three years of probation.

He was arrested last August after police got calls about a naked man hiking, and he was found in a residential yard with a bag containing methamphetamine, marijuana, syringes, a marijuana pipe and his wallet.

His lawyer said he decided to check into the rehab facility after the arrest, and has continued to test clean since the arrest last summer.

Marinovichís NFL career came unraveled because of his drug issues, which he has continued to battle.

Amazing bump of a thread from 10 years ago. Nice to see familiar names again. I love reminiscing about OG LG days.

Naked trespassing? He should have just identified as a dog.

I'd hate to see the same thing happen to the Ball brothers. Lavar Ball is pushing his sons. LiAngelo, LaMelo and Lonzo, hard

I don't see the same thing....
Todd used college to escape from his dad....thats how he dabbled into drugs.
Lonzo looks like he is still pretty close to his dad. Maybe someday he will lose it and cut his dad off......but from what I've seen and hear it doesn't seem like that will happen.
What I hope will happen is that he is only hyping his kids so people will pay attention to them and eventually fade into the background once his kids encounter more success.

I see a Earl Woods connection. I also see a Richard Williams like father. Little is given to Richard Williams net worth of around 20 million. You don't hear much from him anymore. He's doing OK. Has a baby boy with his new wife.
