Reggie Redding Arrested

At this time in the off season, if it were not for bad news there would be no news at all. Rising senior guard Reggie Redding was arrested for possession of an undisclosed (but according to the Daily News account, "...a small...") amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia early this morning. Villanova Public Safety officers noted a damaged sign on campus and notified Radnor Township Police. A search of dorm parking lots turned up a damaged car that was traced to Redding.

The Villanova University Student Handbook indicates students caught using or possessing marijuana face punishments ranging from "...disciplinary probation plus an automatic fine of $750.00, up to and including suspension or expulsion from the University...". The Villanovan Sports Blog published a statement issued by Coach Jay Wright and Villanova University.

Redding, coming off a very productive Big East and post season run, was poised to contribute substantially to next season's teams.
