Former LSU football star Tryann Mathieu (nicknamed Honey Badger) was busted on drug-related charges today in Lousiana, reports TMZ. This news comes just months after the athlete was kicked off the school's team for reportedly failing multiple drug tests.

Apparently cops were called to an apartment this afternoon and Mr. Badger, along with three other men who were also former LSU players, were taken into custody and arrested. Badger was charged with simple possession of marijuana. The other men faced similar charges.

Now, things clearly aren't going so hot for Mathieu on the football and law enforcement front, but there's no indication that his longtime girlfriend, Sydni Paige Russell, has broken up with him. She stood by his side through his release from the football team and even defended him when cheating rumors surfaced. The pair reportedly met at LSU and she'll supposedly graduate in 2015.
