North Carolina LB Quan Sturdivant cited for drug possession

13 Jul 2010

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina coach Butch Davis says he will discipline All-Atlantic Coast Conference linebacker Quan Sturdivant following his weekend citation for drug possession. Albemarle police chief Ronnie Michael says Sturdivant was cited Saturday morning for simple possession of marijuana during a traffic stop. Michael says it is a misdemeanor charge because it was less than a half-ounce of the drug.

Sturdivant was not taken into custody and faces an Aug. 2 court date in Stanly County.

In a statement Monday, Davis says he is disappointed in the senior, though he didn’t specify how the first-team all-ACC performer would be punished
