Hunters’ Lane gridders
expelled for pot use

NASHVILLE (AP) — Officials at Hunters Lane High School in Nashville have expelled 10 football players from school after reviewing a surveillance tape for evidence of them smoking marijuana in the locker room before a game.
The tape was made near a bathroom locker room before the team lost 38-0 to Hendersonville last Friday night.
According to WSMV-TV, a coach at the school heard rumors Monday that some players had smoked pot prior to the game.
The school resource officer then looked at the tape, which showed 11 players around the bathroom.
Possession of drugs on a Metro Nashville school campus is considered a no tolerance offense and automatically results in expulsion.
