Former Cowboys Lineman Arrested On Felony Weapons, Drug Charges In Fla.

Torrin Tucker played in 29 games for Dallas between 2004 and 2005

Former Dallas Cowboys’ offensive lineman Torrin Tucker was arrested on Tuesday night on felony drug and weapons charges after he allegedly sold an undercover officer $20 worth of marijuana at the Tampa strip club where he now works, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

According to the report, Tucker is facing four charges: possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, delivery of marijuana and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony (the marijuana delivering). The report continues to say that Tucker spent the night in jail before being released on $19,500 bail.

Tucker was picked up as an undrafted free agent by Dallas in 2003, and spent three years with the team, playing in 29 games over 2004 and 2005. He spent time on the practice squads of Tampa Bay, Oakland and, after a few brief stops in the Arena and Canadian leagues, the Texans, but never stuck.

According to his Wikipedia page, Tucker was last a member of the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the UFL.
