Igor Olshansky Arrested on Pot Charges a Day After Being Released from Dolphins

Former Miami Dolphins defensive end Igor Olshansky was having a bad week. A calf injury forced him to miss the Thanksgiving Day game against the Cowboys, and the team rewarded him by releasing him on Wednesday. 

All the dude wanted to do was get a little high after a tough work week, but the Broward Sheriff's Office wouldn't let him. He was arrested for the grievous crime of rolling a joint in his own damn kitchen. 

"The Broward Sheriff's Office, participating in a multi-agency drug operation, found Olshansky, 29, rolling a marijuana cigarette at his kitchen table at 3:20 p.m. at his home at Point of Americas at 2200 S. Ocean Lane, a sheriff's arrest report said,"

Way to go tackling the real crime issues Broward Sheriff's Office. Surely society will deteriorate if grown men are allowed to roll a little joint in their kitchen. 

He was charged with one count of possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. He was freed this morning on $100 bound. 

Olshanksy, a Ukrainian, has played most of his career with the San Diego Chargers and the Dallas Cowboys. He was signed by the Dolphins only in September. 

Olshanksy is the third Dolphin, past or present, to run into legal trouble this week. Brandon Marshall was handcuffed briefly this week for ditching out on cab fair, while former Dolphins David Boston was arrested this week as well for allegedly beating a woman.
