APSO: Former Voodoo player caught with marijuana
GONZALES - Authorities arrested a former arena league football player on suspicion of drug and weapons charges after they said he was caught with marijuana in Ascension Parish.
Around 3:30 p.m., Ascension Parish Sheriffs narcotics detectives, DEA agents and Baton Rouge City narcotics detectives arrested Brian Coulter, 27, in the parking lot of an Ascension Parish business.
An investigation led to the sting where Coulter was found with eight pounds of hydroponic marijuana and a 9mm handgun, according to Ascension Parish Chief Deputy Tony Bacala said.
That amount of hydroponic marijuana is worth a street value of approximately $50,000 dollars.
Police charged Coulter with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and illegal carrying of a weapon. He was booked into the Ascension Parish Jail and is awaiting bond.
In 2012, Coulter played defensive end for the New Orleans Voodoo. He graduated from Baker High School and attended Pearl River Community College, and started for the University of Missouri.
