University of Montana Grizzlies starting offensive tackle Trevor Poole faces a felony drug charge after allegedly buying two club drug pills at the weekend Disco Bloodbath III party.

Poole, who was kicked off the team Sunday within hours of being booked into the Missoula County jail, was released on his own recognizance Monday on a charge of criminal possession of dangerous drugs.

The all-night party near the Wye, described in charging documents as a rave, featured a heavy law enforcement presence, something the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office took pains to announce in advance. In addition to a “gantlet” of law enforcement vehicles outside the party, undercover officers roamed within, sheriff’s spokesman Detective Jason Johnson said Monday.

Poole was among three people arrested at the party and charged with felony drug offenses.

Missoula Drug Task Force officers at the party “observed a male later identified as Trevor M. Poole, engaged in a ‘hand to hand transaction’ involving the exchange of cash for a plastic baggie,” according to the charging documents filed Monday by Deputy Missoula County Attorney Shaun Donovan.

Poole admitted to officers that he had two “molly” pills in his pocket, Donovan’s affidavit said. Molly is a street name for a version of Ecstacy.

“He also admitted purchasing the pills that night from a male who offered to sell him the drug,” the affidavit said.

The allegation against Poole, 20, a redshirt sophomore from Spokane, mandated “immediate, indefinite dismissal,” under UM’s new Student Athlete Code of Conduct, imposed earlier this year, according to UM athletic director Kent Haslam.

“He’s humbled by what happened and embarrassed,” Poole’s attorney, Paul Ryan, said Monday. “He’s going to work hard to try and restore his credibility.”

Poole’s father, Scott, and uncle, Shawn, both played for the Grizzlies.

The arrest comes at a time of heightened scrutiny of UM’s football program, which is under investigation by the NCAA for alleged violations, which have not been made public.

***

Two other people face felony drug charges as a result of arrests at Disco Bloodbath III, which was held north of Missoula off U.S. Highway 93 near the Wye.

Matthew Tyler Rardin, 28, of St. Ignatius, was ordered held on $50,000 bail Monday on a charge of criminal distribution of dangerous drugs. Rardin allegedly sold 4 grams of a street drug to an undercover officer at the party. After being arrested, authorities found two pills and $883 in cash, according to charging documents.

At Rardin’s initial appearance Monday in Missoula County Justice Court, Donovan said Rardin has six previous drug convictions, two of them felonies.

Kyle Don Nelson, 24, of Missoula, also was charged with criminal distribution of dangerous drugs after he allegedly tried to sell a single “molly” tablet to an undercover officer at the party. Nelson was released on his own recognizance Monday.

Criminal distribution of dangerous drugs, the charge filed against Nelson and Rardin, carries a maximum penalty of between 10 years and life in Montana State Prison and a $50,000 fine.

Criminal possession of dangerous drugs, filed against Poole, is punishable by up to five years in prison and/or a $50,000 fine.

So many kids really want an education. They'll do almost anything it takes from multiple jobs to saddling themselves with student loans. Young Mr. Poole threw away a free ride college education (allegedly), for purchasing a couple of illegal pills at a party he knew was saturated with law enforcement. I tend to agree with Hellgatenights. College not for this boy. He needs a physically demanding job that pays very little. In time, he may realize what he mindlessly threw away. I believe in redemption. I hope he returns to college and struggles along with his classmates and completes his education.

Poole maybe isn't cut out for college......not here anyway. It was terrible stupid and foolish to buy this lame drug (which probably isn't even ecstasy).......but to purchase it in the heavy and well known presence of peace officers?

No........college not for this man.

What kind of arbitrary idiocy is this where an adult at a public university can't enjoy drugs at a party? Zero tolerance for what? Capricious pseudo-Christian morality imposed on victimless football players? I don't care about the Griz, or sports in general, and don't understand the need to keep those involved on some archaic plan where they take rape pledges and and can't buy ecstasy. It's unbelievable that even in our post-9/11 world we still get worked up over this ridiculous mess that is no one's business but this kid's--not his coach's, his parent's, the fan's, or anybody--and what kind of cops arrest users anyway? Are we in Utah? Charging users with selling because they're sharing with others? Shouldn't they be looking for the manufacturer or supplier? No, because Missoula cops are too stupid to find them, and have no scruples about locking up and ruining the life of a college kid that wanted to get high at a party. For shame.

No worries, the Ecstasy wasn't going to be consumed by the footballers, that's against the rules and can show up as a positive on a drug test. It was to slip into your daughter's drink to make her feel all aroused and consenting, “consensual”, so the whole squad could have her without all these ridiculous rape charges hanging over their heads. it is better for the program's PR when the girls say, “YES!”, “AGAIN!” & “MORE!”.

I wondered about "gantlet" too, and looked it up. It is the older spelling of " gauntlet", and is not incorrect.

You can be sure that, being a first time offender, this will either be plead down, or he will receive a deferred sentence, meaning it will be off his record if he stays out of trouble. His life will not be ruined, but the free ride has come to an end.

I disagree with the people on here that say this shouldn't be reported. Becoming a football player means you become a public figure. Of course it's going to be a bigger deal for someone who is already in the public eye to have this happen, rather than some "Joe Blow". That's the mantle he accepted, and it came with many benefits, as well as responsibilities.

To the people saying there needs to be more laws, different laws, less laws, etc.: none of that will help. This is a culture problem, plain and simple. Missoula has a huge, well known drug culture. People travel to, and move to Missoula for it. The answer starts at home, with your own family.

First off, I'm not a Griz fan. I don't understand their league and it seems to me they play random barber colleges around the region. I don't get the hype and I don't give a doodie about it. I don't need some stupid team camaraderie to make me feel good about myself.That being said, TWO FELONY CHARGES for this is ridiculous. He would have been better off raping poached wolves while driving drunk, he'd get less charges. Missoula really needs to prioritize their punishments for "crime". This is clearly just someone being a college student, off-campus on their own time. Did he get nude and chase people around with an axe or something? Doesn't sound like it. Plea it down and let this poor dude retain his life.One more thing, is spell-check technology too much for the Missoulian? What the heck is a "Gantlet"?Wow the profanity filter on this is epic....I can't for the life of me tell what word is being flagged here...Griz? Caca?

It amazes me that any whatsoever non-pure uptight so-called Christian conservative behavior pattern is construed as felonious and criminal. And it's always the "liberal" agenda that is closest to the criminal stigma in the attitudinal viewpoint of rural (Media?) America.
I wonder if they can even cite one principle of whatever is conservative nowadays without talking like some drooling knuckledragging sycophant of Corporate America that has no better than a monetary figure to qualify every person's life since the last Ice Age. Even Hesiod's Theogony of nearly 2,700 years ago would have it as in the respect of the interest of the sovereign, along with that, protection of one's own household. But that would really entail noncriminal attitudes, now wouldn't it? Felony? Isn't that when someone attacks some person and/or property in the violation of the American Creed?

Dear goldstd and montanamuralist

We all know there there are about 100 football players at the school. The Recruiting Class of 2012 (about 20 of them) - now freshmen (or red shirt freshmen) on the team signed their letters last feb right before the coaching change - at the spring game these guys bound together as a group commiting to the standards required of them. Once again, when August camp started , they renewed their commitment together. No one knows the future and we can all "sin". But this 2012 class already does things in the right direction - for one they go the the movies together - all 20, and things like that // usually defense and offense stay away from each other - this class is binding together as a group - and I know for a fact that this group of 20 met last night as a group after the team meeting about this current situation - what does it mean - time will tell - but as a group they are to look out for each other - and their goal is to be know as a good recruiting class, on and off of the field. Time will tell, but they have started out on good footing, let's hope they succeed

Molly or MDMA ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MDMA ) is the new drug of choice for many, many people. It is cheap, provides a euphoric high, and metabolizes quickly so as not to appear in a drug test.

I've seen the availability and popularity of this drug explode in Montana in a relatively short time. It's very prevalent and easy to get.

It's not just Griz players who are using this - It's very popular among highschool and college students state and nationwide.

It's usually associated with neon clothing, glow sticks, lasers and electronic dance music (e.g. techno, dubstep, etc.) - if you want to know more, just find that crowd - your kid is probably going to one of these parties on Wednesday.

Florio turn your focus on something else other than the football players!! This is ABSURD to me that you can put someones personal information and mistake on blast like this. You are not only hurting the people involved but have you thought about his FAMILY?? No one on here that has left a comment can't say they have never made a mistake in their life. Put yourself in his shoes, being in the spotlight, and having your one mistake being announced for everyone to know. COME ON! What 18,19, 20 year old isn't experiencing college life. Let me just ask this one question, what were you doing at the age of 19??? Obviously not dedicating your time, focus, passion and life to football and school. Get real guys.

I think maybe the young man should have been thinking about his family before he decided to do drugs or maybe his family should have been doing a better job of instilling some common sense into the kid. I kind of doubt this was his "one big mistake" more like the first time he got caught. Not defending Florio but if you know you are under a microscope I think you owe it to your team and family not to be an idiot. I guess the word selfish comes to mind.

That was a good movie, didn't they do a re-make? The original was with Burt Reynolds, right? It appears the football players need to ride the short bus from now on. Doesn't take a lot of brains to realize, especially considering current events, that the University of Montana football team is an easy target. They are watching you. Big Brother of Missoula is watching you. Of course I'd question whether or not University of Montana Football players can read. I wish I could run, throw and catch a football, boo hoo for me. Anyway I digress. Uh, Gwen, we all know that the University of Montana football appears to be very dense, how about a story about what happened to the fleeing Saudi Rape Suspect? Inquiring minds want to know? Have they released his name yet? Who is obstructing our right to know who it was? Obviously there is no harm in releasing his name, he's not coming back, how about it?

montanamuralist

Most football programs, and I would ask anyone to check around the nation in various divisions, have these issues come up. Not at the same level UM has the last couple years or so but most have kids who are not willing to take responsibility for their actions, make correct choices and act in a way that brings credit to their school and themselves. When you sign a letter of commitment to play football here you are coming in to an elite program and need to be aware you are representing the University, the state and the people of this community. You are a role model for kids. You can not act like an immature kid in college. You have to grow up and make that choice when you sign to receive a scholarship. We give you a free education. You give us a commitment to be a cut above average and represent the University and the state with integrity and a good work ethic. So, sadly, we are finding many who come for the big crowds and the adulation but not as many Marc Mariani's who walk on and make something of themselves and never miss a game. Most of these kids will not go to the pro ranks of course,so this is their moment in their athletic career to shine and be an example of what hard work and dedication can bring a person in their life. We are getting away from that now and if players continue to make choices, and it is a choice, to put themselves in a situation that is harmful and detrimental then they have to go. Three more are now suspended for the Weber game. We will be lucky to win another game this season. What we can hope for is that a precedent is being set for future student athletes and all this is just growth and a cleaning process that will lead to the program regaining its stature and winning record...and most of all giving kids a quality education and a fun experience in athletics. That is what I am hoping for...and that the Board of Regents gets rid of Engstrom....he has been an issue in this since day one. Not good for the program of the University. Delaney is a nice guy but they obviously have not got the message across if this stuff is still going on.

This does not reflect poorly on the University, at least it shouldn't. It reflects on the IQ of any UM Athlete who doesn't realize he/she are under microscopes this year and they need to act like they are in a church choir for at least a year. Is that so much to ask for a free education? If this young man is too stupid to understand, then cut him lose and find some players with a little higher IQ.

Whoaaaa....Cool your jets people. These are Kids...Kids do stupid things sometimes because they are kids.

This situation is not the same as the one where women were sexually violated, which was a horrible violent crime. From my understanding of this story, some Kids were basically at a party here getting high. You yourself have never gone to a concert? You your self do not have kids who at some point in time may have taken illegal drugs while in college?

I do not think we need to send this kid to the big house or hang him. The posts on here are generally over reactions to story only partly reported. Please show some restraint and at least an once of compassion and respect.

It's Criminal Possession of Dangerous Drugs, and if this is his first time being charged with a drug charge, and a case can be made for personal use, I wouldn't be surprised if he could make a plea agreement to get this reduced to a misdemeanor. But, how enough info in the story to tell for sure.

Another senseless casualty in the War on Drugs. Probably a mostly congenial and respectful young manchild who admittedly chose a dangerous time and place to party. The police certainly warned the world to be really really cool and to keep drugs on the down low. Poor Mr. Poole has instantly been tried, convicted, humiliated, punished, and certainly to be shunned over what? A joint, a few pills?

A drunk driver that kills a family on I-90 can delay justice for years, continue to binge drink and drive and go to work, abuse his family and life goes on. Mr. Poole's life stopped sometime in the wee hours of Sunday morning. May God have mercy on this young man. May God guide the DJ to grant the motion to suppress all evidence. Poole has already been punished beyond on reasonable measure by his collegiate subculture. Stripped of his warrior's armor and scholarship, stigmatized amongst his most values peer group for life.

Totally obscene, even if he is guilty. If I serve on his jury, I will vote not guilty, not guilty, not gulity of anything worth permanently branding this man as a life long criminal. Nullification is the reserved right of every patriot and freeman.

Why does every Griz fan get so bent out of shape over an article like this? Whenever a Griz player is charged with a crime the Missoula legal geniuses come out screaming "innocent till proven guilty", yet if a crime is reported for a non-athlete they don't come say a thing. Until you stop defending these morons, the irresponsible and reckless party behavior of UM and its football players will not change. Keep blaming Florio, the Missoulian, and anyone else you can, but until you hold athletes accountable for being jackasses the rest of the country will keep laughing at the program.

Vigalantee
Vigalantee

Why you ask? Because a non-athlete that gets arrested for such an offense doesn't make the front page of the news paper. Athletes are people just like anyone else only because they play a popular sport like football they get thrown into the spotlight and bashed on. Had this been a golfer or a track athlete, people wouldn't even be glancing at this. Sounds like the guy screwed up and the coaches, AD, and president all took the appropriate measures and didn't try to hide anything. Lets go ahead and judge the rest of the team as "jackasses" because lets face it, we're all judgmental a-holes that have never done any wrong ourselves.

Alan Johnson
Alan Johnson

Though “teased” on the front page, the story actually appeared inside the paper. But, no, the whole team should not be blamed because of alleged actions of a few. Yes, it’s newsworthy if Griz football players get in trouble. They are local celebrities. And as such, they represent the team and the school and they should be held to a higher standard of conduct. The bulk of the players meet that high standard. I notice also that a new story has three prominent Grizzly players suspended for the Weber game. No cause other than violation of team rules is given, though the coach says it’s not due to actions involving law enforcement. Some expect too much of the university, athletic department and coaching staff when they recruit players. There’s only so much a “screening” reveals. Unless there is something on the record, like past arrests for drugs, there is no way the future drug use of any player can be predicted. No one has a crystal ball. It’s time to stop blaming everyone but the persons involved when there’s bad news. I wish the best for the people involved. But the paper must print the story. If it didn’t, there would just as many detractors screaming “cover-up!” The university, athletic department, coaching staff can’t be blamed, on just mere reflex, for the individual actions of players. There is usually nothing they could have found in recruiting that would predict the future conduct of an athlete.

joaoba
joaoba

No, athletes are not people just like anyone else. They represent the program, the university, the city, and the state of Montana, and they act as role models for young people everywhere. Blame the paper all you want, but the student is accountable for his actions. And I've never labeled the entire team as "jackasses", just those who behave like this while they're part of the program. I also never claimed to do any wrong myself. I have done some stupid things, and it was printed in the paper. I was self employed at the time, so it really only hurt me (not my employer).

Vigalantee

Can't really blame anyone except the student here. Its not a "cali" or Texan thug that so many biased Montanans seem to think cause the problems on our football teams. This is a guy from Spokane, pretty much a city that Missoula will be in fifty years and right across the pan handle from us. I think the program has handled this well and the only fault lies on the student. The rest of you righteous people need to quit acting like you've never screwed up in your life and stop judging a group of good men by the actions of one.

Florio does not like football players, that is for sure. But if this is true about Poole, send back to where he came from immediately. And it is also true, this UM football team management needs to check into the background of some of these potential players before signing them on.
Some of them are not cut out for life at UM.
