Former heavyweight boxing champion Tommy Morrison was arrested on a felony charge last week. Sound serious, right? Eh, not really. The Kansas Highway Patrol arrested Morrison on the Kansas Turnpike for ... marijuana. Shock!
Morrison reportedly had 8 grams of marijuana with him, so he's facing felony charges for possession with a prior conviction and a misdemeanor charge of possession. The ex-champ got
dinged in 2000 and 2005 for marijuana possession.
Morrison's next court date is scheduled for March 15.
About a week ago, Pitch editor Joe Tone wrote about Morrison's latest bit of crazy: His insistence that HIV is a myth created by the government (his girlfriend is so convinced that she says they have unprotected sex), his training for a comeback and his experience with teleportation. Really.
