Legal issues for Mackey, Mosley | Ole Miss Sports

Update 3:40 p.m.

We’ll go to practice in a bit. Nutt will talk after practice. Not much more has turned up by way of OPD. Officers responded to a fight at the Lyric.

Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt will talk after today’s practice and will no doubt address his quarterbacks and now other things as well.

Also over the weekend tight end Jamal Mosley was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with public drunk, according to

It’s Mosley’s first brush with law enforcement at Ole Miss but not his first brush with the law.

ESPN blogged in Sept. 2009 that Mosley was under a restraining order filed by a female at the time that he left Oklahoma State for what was defined as “personal reasons.” He had also been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession earlier that summer.
