Do'h! Drug Arrest Nets Zips' Alex Abreu An Untimely Suspension

Posted By on Fri, Mar 8, 2013 at 9:43 AM

  • Abreu
Shortly after the Akron Zips clinched the Mid-American Conference regular season title, point guard Alex Abreu found himself in handcuffs following a trafficking and possession bust for marijuana. ...Five pounds of marijuana. ...Two third-degree felony charges.

He and an 18-year-old buddy were arraigned in court this morning. Bond was set at $5,000.

In many ways, Abreu was a natural force of leadership on the team. He led the team to what was a nationally stunning 18-game winning streak and to a near certain NCAA tournament entry point.

The PD's Elton Alexander has the details on Abreu's seasons thus far, which ran headfirst into a brick wall this week. The PD story also features the typical round of intellectual comments on this story, so do check into those, as well.
