    PFT: Pead was arrested for marijuana possession in Texas last July

    Pead was arrested for marijuana possession in Texas last July
    Posted by Mike Florio on June 7, 2013, 6:24 PM EDT

    The NFL, the Rams, and running back Isaiah Pead have danced around the specific reason for his one-game suspension for violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.

    The evidence points to a violation of the law, but no one has said what it was and where it happened.

    So we decided to start poking around. And it really didn’t take much effort to get to the answer.

    The website WhoIsArrested.com reveals that Isaiah D. Pead was arrested on July 7, 2012 in McKinney, Texas for possession of less than two ounces of marijuana. Though the arrest record lacks Pead’s date of birth, the middle initial and height/weight are the same, and the mugshot looks just like the Isaiah D. Pead who plays for the Rams.

    Coach Jeff Fisher’s recent comments on the subject mesh with that time line.

    “This was an incident that took place last summer, so we dealt with it at that point knowing that the league was probably going to follow up,” Fisher said.

    A one-game suspension is the standard NFL-imposed punishment for marijuana possession. The implementation of the suspension means the case was resolved with something other than an exoneration of Pead.

    It’s somewhat amazing that, in this era where Big Brother is pretty much everywhere and everyone, an arrest of a second-round NFL draft pick went completely unnoticed until the NFL meted out the internal discipline. It helps explain why Pead ended up buried on the depth chart in 2012, a rookie season he has called “miserable.”

    No real surprise here. Pretty clear it was a substance abuse issue, and when Fisher didn't dispute the league suspension for Pead like he did for Watkins, my first thought was marijuana.

    Hopefully Pead has learned his lesson, and with a clean slate, will hit 2013 with a renewed vengeance.

    Well how many times he will waste a chance like this, the verdict is out but hopefully he needs to grow up and stay clean to stay in the league.

    Regardless of anyone's personal opinion on the either the merits or detriments of the substance, it was a controlled substance which he was illegally in possession of.

    The substance isn't the issue as much as is his responsibility to his teammates and the Rams organization. Because of his decision, he will not be playing in game one. He's let the entire team down because of an immature and foolish decision. Isaiah is hopefully a kid who will learn from this entire experience. Many of us at one time or another have had to learn things the hard way - let's hope this incident proves hard enough for Pead.

    Makes sense. Of all the things he could have gotten in trouble for, this is probably one of the least troublesome.

    Why did it take a full year for discipline?

    And this is, really and truly, the moral of the story.
