Washington State's Klay Thompson Cited for Possession of Marijuana

Kip ArneyCorrespondent IMarch 4, 2011

Following an 85-77 victory over USC Thursday night, Washington State junior Klay Thompson was pulled over, initially for having a headlight out on his vehicle.

Upon standing outside the vehicle, an officer smelled marijuana and it was later revealed that there was 1.95 grams of suspected marijuana inside the vehicle. Thompson was cited for the misdemeanor and released without a set court date.

Thompson is the leading scorer in the Pac-10 at 21.4 points a game and his team is currently one of four teams in the first four out category of ESPN's Bracketology projected by Joe Linardi.

It remains to be seen if Thompson will play tomorrow afternoon against UCLA in the team's final regular season game.

The Cougars are already waiting to hear about the status of starting point guard Reggie Moore after he sprained his ankle last night and was seen in a boot on the bench during the second half.

This is the second time the Cougars have had to deal with a player being caught with marijuana, as Moore was cited back in December, resulting in him missing one game before returning to action.

Did Klay Thompson just play his final game in Pullman?
