According to this article by Jeff Greer of the Courier-Journal, James Quick and Jason Hatcher were cited for possession of marijuana by UofL police on May 26 in Quick’s apartment. Quick is a sophomore wide receiver for the Cards and Hatcher is a sophomore defensive lineman for Kentucky. They were teammates at Trinity High School here in Louisville.

The following is from the article:

The officer who wrote the citation noted he found 39.5 grams of marijuana in Quick’s possession, plus a digital scale and a marijuana grinder, which prompted Quick’s citation for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hatcher had 2.5 grams of marijuana in his pocket when police arrived at the apartment, according to the citation.

The report says both Hatcher and Quick were compliant with U of L police officers when they asked to search the apartment. Officers also noted jars in the apartment with marijuana buds and roaches.

Quick and Hatcher, both 19, have court dates set for this summer. Hatcher’s is June 23; Quick’s is July 7.

Possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia are both classified as misdemeanors in Kentucky.

Both schools released statements and basically said that they are aware of the situation and will handle it internally, as you would pretty much expect. You never really hear how these things will be handled.
