Former Raiders QB Todd Marinovich facing new drug charges
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) Former USC and Los Angeles Raiders quarterback Todd Marinovich is facing new drug charges after he allegedly was seen trying to enter a stranger's home naked.
Prosecutors filed misdemeanor charges Tuesday accusing the 47-year-old Irvine resident of trespassing, public nudity and possessing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. He could face up to three years in jail if convicted.
Authorities say a naked Marinovich tried to open the sliding glass door of an Irvine home in August. He allegedly left a bag containing meth, marijuana, drug gear, his wallet and driver's license on a nearby hiking trail.
The former USC and Raiders quarterback has struggled with drug problems that drove him from the NFL and resulted in several arrests.
Contact information for Marinovich couldn't immediately be found.
