Report: Tennessee QB Kaidon Salter stopped by police for second time since joining Vols
Earlier this offseason, Tennessee freshman QB Kaidon Salter was among 4 players suspended from the team for a marijuana incident.
He has only recently been cleared to rejoin the team, but now, according to a new report, he faces more drug-related and traffic-related charges.
Per a report from WBIR, Salter and DL Amari McNeill were stopped and cited for marijuana possession, among other things, at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning. Tennessee has issued a statement on the matter:
“We are aware of the incident and are awaiting further information,” UT Athletics told 10News on Monday afternoon.
Per the police report, Salter was the driver, stopped for having no tail lights, among other things:
The report states: “Mr. Salter was stopped for a violation of light law (no tail lights) and a tinted plate cover over the vehicle`s registration. Mr. Salter subsequently admitted (post Miranda) to having marijuana (approx 4 grams) and telling the passenger to throw it out when officers stopped the vehicle.”
What this means for Salter’s future with the team remains to be seen.
