USC Quarterback Mitch Mustain Arrested by LAPD

Mitch Mustain has had a star-crossed college football career. After being a highly-decorated high school player and apparent quarterback of the future at Arkansas, Mustain famously transferred to USC and never saw the field much after that.

Then on Wednesday comes a report that Mustain was arrested by Los Angeles police for allegedly selling prescription drugs online - a story that was first reported by Roger Lodge of KLAA-AM 830 in Los Angeles.

Bail was set at $30,000 and it is unknown if he is still being held at this time.

It's been a pretty long fall for a guy who was once named National Player of the Year by Gatorade, Parade Magazine and USA Today. After helping Springdale (Ark.) High School win a state championship, Mustain seemed to be the quarterback of the future for Houston Nutt and the Arkansas Razorbacks. At one point, Mustain started and won eight in a row for Arkansas during his freshman campaign. But rumors surfaced that he was unhappy that Darren McFadden (who ran for a school-record 1,647 yards that season) had become the centerpiece of the offense, leading to his transfer to USC.

After that, Mustain never saw many meaningful snaps. He made just one start - a 20-16 loss to Notre Dame this past season - and finished his Trojan career with 52 completions on 89 attempts and three touchdowns in just three seasons.

All in all, it caps a rough week for Trojans and the law. Former USC (and current Minnesota Vikings) defensive end Everson Griffen was cited for public drunkenness over the weekend. Several days later, Griffen was charged with assaulting a police officer while he was being arrested during a traffic stop.
