View Full Version : Loucheiz Purifoy arrested
you can take this draft prospect off the Steelers draft board. He was arrested in Gainsville Florida on drug charges. I can see Purifoy fitting in on the Bungals or the Rat Birds, they have a history of drafting future convicts. :helmet:

Report: Loucheiz Purifoy was caught with drugs, avoided arrest
Posted by Michael David Smith on April 19, 2014, 4:28 PM EDT
Loucheiz Purifoy, a former Florida cornerback who is expected to be drafted next month, reportedly was caught with drugs last month and avoided arrest by agreeing to work as a police informant.
Now the matter of how Purifoy avoided arrest is the subject of an investigation. The Gainesville Sun reports that Purifoy never made himself available to officers to serve as an informant, so the Alachua County sheriff, whose officers originally stopped Purifoy, has asked the Gainesville Police Department to conduct an independent investigation into the matter.
According to the report, Purifoy was caught with marijuana and the synthetic drug known as bath salts. Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell wrote in a letter to Gainesville Police Chief Tony Jones that after Purifoy failed to act as an informant an arrest warrant issued for him was quashed, and now the matter needs to be investigated.

This article says he wasn't actually arrested. Still sounds like bad news though. Doubt the Steelers would risk drafting him in light of this.

He looked like he was on drugs at the Combine. He looked like a 5th round pick or later, but now.......just say NO!
