Court affidavits allege Carl Pelini used marijuana, cocaine
According to a court affidavit signed by an assistant coach, former FAU head coach Carl Pelini is alleged to have used marijuana and cocaine.
Earlier this week Florida Atlantic coach Carl Pelini and defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis both resigned their positions over what the school called "illegal drug use." Now we have a bit more detail into what kind of alleged drug use Pelini and Rekstis took part in.
WPTV.com published court documents given to them by the school, and in those documents a special teams coach alleges that he witnessed Pelini smoking marijuana in Key West on Oct. 19.
The same coach also claims to have seen Pelini and Rekstis use marijuana and cocaine within the last year.
The court documents can be seen here. Florida Atlantic defensive line and special teams coach Matt Edwards signed the affidavits, along with Allison Stewart, who is described by the Sun Sentinel as a person close to the FAU program.
Pelini and Rekstis resigned on Wednesday, with Pelini saying in a statement through FAU athletic director Patrick Chun, "I apologize for exercising poor judgment."
Pelini was in the middle of his second season at Florida Atlantic, and had a record of 5-15.
