This doesn’t seem to be a wrong place at the wrong time situation either.
Reports TMZ Sports:
Officials say Naijiel Hale — a junior cornerback — set up multiple drug deals with buyers who turned out to be undercover police officers back in February.
On one occasion, cops say they contacted Hale to purchase a bunch of Xanax pills, and he allegedly kicked them over to his teammate, Darren Gardenhire, who completed the transaction.
Another time, cops say Hale arranged a deal at his home where he had a 3rd person deliver the drugs.
Hale has now been charged with 2 counts of felony distribution of dangerous drugs and 1 count of misdemeanor possession. The felony charges carry a maximum penalty of life in prison.
According to KZBK, both players have been suspended indefinitely from the team. Hale was booted from Washington’s football team in 2015 for disciplinary reasons.
Safe bet that Naijiel Hale’s scholarship is a wrap.
