24-year-old former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell ends his holiday weekend with a bang that sent him to jail on drug charges. If you hadn’t heard the story, it’s getting more and more coverage in sports news as the morning progresses. Russell was officially charged with possession of a controlled substance known as codeine after being arrested at his home in Alabama yesterday afternoon. The drug bust culminated a portion of the undercover narcotics investigation of Russell, the former LSU star and 2007’s No. 1 draft choice.

The athletic star was booked into the city jail this weekend and was also released on a $2,500 bond according to additional online reports this morning. For additional reports, check out the coverage on BlackAmericaWeb.com today.
