So much for a quiet off season...

Ken Gordon reported earlier tonight that Mike Adams and J.B. Shugarts were pulled over January 14th for blowing a stop sign leading to each being charged with one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Neither player was arrested and both have plead not guilty with pre-trial hearings set for Monday (Adams) and Wednesday (Shugarts).

While the charge is only a fourth degree misdemeanor carrying a max of 30 days in the hole and a $250 fine, this is the not the way these two were hoping to make the news.

No comment yet from Tressel.

UPDATE: The charges against Adams have been dropped. Both players are said to have aced on-the-spot drug tests. Awesome.
