Report: former Tide star Marcell Dareus arrested

Posted: Updated:
Cleburne County, AL - Marcell Dareus was reportedly arrested in Cleburne County this week for possession of synthetic cannabis, which is also known as "spice".

The story was first reported by WVUA-TV.

According to the Cleburne County Sheriff's Office, Dareus was stopped for speeding by an Alabama State Trooper on Monday night. The Buffalo Bills defensive tackle was taken to jail and released later that night.

Dareus attended Huffman High School in Birmingham before signing to play at Alabama in 2008. Dareus earned first team All-SEC honors in 2009 and was named the Defensive MVP of Alabama's win over Texas in the 2010 BCS National Championship game.

Dareus was selected third overall by the Buffalo Bills in the 2011 NFL Draft. He was named to his first Pro Bowl last season and the Bills rewarded the player by picking up the fifth year option of his rookie contract.
