Washington State star Klay Thompson was arrested late Thursday for possession of marijuana.

He's been suspended for Saturday's game against UCLA.

The Spokesman Review is reporting Thompson -- a junior guard who is averaging 21.4 points per game -- was pulled over near campus because he was driving without a headlight. The Pullman Police Department officer who pulled Thompson over reported smelling the odor of marijuana. Thompson was the driver and sole occupant. Once a search warrant was obtained, officers found 1.95 grams of marijuana in Thompson's car.

Thompson was issued a criminal citation and released.

Washington State is 19-10 overall, 9-8 in the Pac-10.

Unfortunate set of events but what where you thinking Klay? Driving late at night with a damaged headlight and the odor of marijuana in the air and car. If you have to use it, do it in the privacy of your own home. Every little thing you do as a high profile athelete will be scrutinized to no end.  Somebody squealed on Davies of BYU but you did this on your own.

So, Klay Thompson was arrested for possession of marijuana and issued a criminal citation, resulting in his suspension from the team. Makes sense.
Brandon Davies admitted to having had pre-marital sex and some alcohol, resulting in his suspension from the team. Doesn't make sense.

A college student exercising poor judgment?  Never thought I'd see the day...

Poor choice, unfortunate timing. Would think the team leader would be more aware than this. But hey, at least he didn't engage in premarital sex, because THAT would have been...oh wait, that's right, he goes to college in reality. (Well, not exactly reality, we are talking about Pullman, WA - which might explain the need to smoke pot in the first place.) Too bad he wasn't in Eugene...

I thought he would be smarter than that. Don't they ever learn that people in the public eye, for whatever reason, must be careful to not do anything dumb because, "YOU WILL GET CAUGHT".
