OSG High: 7 Arrested In "Molly" Bust Including LSU Baseball Signee

((HT: AJC/Stevens))

And the HQ knows what you're asking...

"What in the wild world of sports is Molly?" (other than a Ringwold or someone paired with Fibber and McGee)

Molly is a new variant on ecstasy that has a similar make-up to meth and acts the same. Seven ounces of MDMA powder was found in the home and $17,000 worth of the drug was seized along with marijuana and a weapon in what Bartow County (GA) authorities are calling a first of its kind.

Seven people were arrested- including LSU baseball signee Dylan Williams who played baseball at Cass High School, located in suburban Cartersville in Bartow County.

A traffic stop of one of the seven led to a search warrant of that individual's home and the arrest of the other six.

Williams and two other 18-year-olds were charged with trafficking Ecstasy, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, and possession of a firearm while committing a felony.

Here's the story on the bust...

All seven were booked into the Bartow County jail and local authorities are saying more arrests in the case are likely. LSU baseball coach Paul Mainieri told the Baton Rouge Advocate newspaper he was informed about the arrest and has talked to Williams' father. From the conversation, Mainieri said, it was his understanding Williams happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. From the Baton Rouge Advocate's Matthew Harris: Mainieri said Williams’ father told him the pitcher had gone to the home to pick up a high school friend to get a bite to eat and “do what kids do” and “police broke into a house he doesn’t even live in, and next thing you know he’s accused of something.” “They obviously feel he’s been wrongfully accused of something,” Mainieri said. “It’s definitely the strangest thing that I’ve ever heard of. As you might imagine, there’s a kid who feels his world is crumbling all around and him and knows he did nothing wrong. If he’s telling the truth, he didn’t do anything wrong.”
Williams could face a minimum sentence of three years in prison and a $25,000 fine if convicted of Ecstasy trafficking. A conviction on the marijuana charge could bring a sentence between one and 10 years in prison.
