Apparently a failed cocaine deal led to an arson being set outside of Justin Feagin's West Quad dorm room.

But that's just the beginning of the story.

A student told police that, "It was common knowledge that Feagin sold marijuana," and that Feagin, "Hung out at our house lots of times smoking pot."

Feagin told police that, "I have admitted to people I know, that I used to sell drugs in Florida."

Apparently, Feagin had been arrested for battery and trespassing in Florida, but nothing ever came of either situation. He also told police that he, "Had a problem with some guys at Studio 4 (in Ann Arbor) over some girls. There was a fight and the police were called."

Anyway, the cocaine deal happened before Thanksgiving 2008 and involved $600 and an acquaintance of Feagin's in Florida. Feagin discussed helping a friend in Ann Arbor by sending the cash to Florida for an ounce of cocaine. When the cocaine never showed, the student set the fire to warn Feagin, and left him threatening messages and texts.

In a statement Sunday, Rodriguez said, "I dismissed Justin Feagin the moment that I was provided information contrary to our team policies."
