Ex-Cowboy Olshansky Arrested On Pot Charge

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (AP)  Former Dallas Cowboy, and more recently Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Igor Olshansky has been arrested on a marijuana possession charge.

A Broward Sheriff’s Office report released Friday says the 29-year-old Olshansky was charged after he was seen rolling a marijuana cigarette on his kitchen table.

The report doesn’t say what led deputies to Olshansky’s condominium but says the arrest was part of a broader crackdown on street and drug crimes. Olshansky was free Friday on $100 bail on a single charge of possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana.

A Ukraine native, Olshansky was released this week by the Dolphins. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound lineman has also played for the Dallas Cowboys and San Diego Charges over eight NFL seasons.

It wasn’t clear if Olshansky had hired a lawyer.
