On Wednesday, Auburn Tigers defensive back Jonathon Mincy spoke in front of a large group of kids for a D.A.R.E (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) event. On Friday, irony kicked in when the senior football player was arrested and charged with second degree marijuana possession.

"It was a routine stop on 431 near Great Southern Wood in Abbeville of a car doing 92 in a 65," Henry County Sheriff William Maddox told The Dothan Eagle. "The officer went to the car and smelled marijuana. There were two males and two females in the car and one of the males had shake all over his shirt sitting in the car in the back and there was a bag of marijuana near him. That person happened to be Jonathon Mincy of the Auburn football team."


Not exactly a crowning moment for the Decatur, Ga., native.

In the spring, head coach Gus Malzahn called Mincy "a guy that we'll rely on" due in part to his "quality big-game experience."

Mincy, a three-year starter for the Tigers, finished last season with 56 tackles and 14 pass breakups.
