Todd Marinovich Arrested in Backyard Naked and Hiding with Drugs: Irvine PD
Irvine Police Department
A naked Todd Marinovich, the former Mater Dei, Capo Valley and USC star quarterback—and kinda sorta Oakland Raiders bust—was arrested in Irvine for trespassing and possessing suspected narcotics and drug paraphernalia, according to police.
The Irvine Police Department got a call around 9:20 p.m. Friday about a naked man crouching in bushes near Venta Spur Trail, Commander Mike Hallinan says.
Officers searched the area and found a naked man hiding in the backyard of a residence on Bluecoat, Hallinan says.
The arrestee was identified as Todd Marvin Marinovich, the 47-year-old Irvine resident who has been bedeviled by drug issues dating back at least to his college days.
Hallinan says officers found a bag belonging to Marinovich that contained the suspected narcotics and paraphernalia.
Others are reporting the lefty had pot.
Marinovich was cited and released, according to police.
