Former UCLA football player Morrell Presley is arrested
Presley, who came to UCLA with great fanfare in 2009, left school in spring after a string of problems. He was suspended one game for violating team rules as a freshman. He was academically ineligible for the Bruins’ EagleBank Bowl appearance the follow season.
A year ago, he was suspended for one game after failing a drug test for the third time, according to multiple people in the program who were no authorized to speak on the subject.
His Aug. 17 arrest on the misdemeanor charges was made by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department. He was released the following day.
