Bad Week Gets Worse - Lay Arrested On Drug Charges

Power CB Josh Lay was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped in Alliquippa on March 21, and apparently had some weed in the car with him. A lot. And some scales. And some cell phones. A recipe for "intent to distribute."

This somehow went completely under the radar until now. Lay played in last week's loss to the Tulsa Talons.

Michael Gorham, COO of the Power, was also apparently not aware of the charges, the exact nature of which is undisclosed at this time. It probably goes against best practices to have drug charges filed against you and not tell your employer.

Lay's status with the league and the team are unknown at this time.

The Post-Gazette has more.

Apparently this is from March of LAST YEAR!

Not good publicity for a team trying to find its way, although I know there's a lot of people who think marijuana should be legalized anyways.

Well now I am seeing conflicting articles. says it was 2010, then also says it happened two days after his Power debut.

Some really good editing right there.
