Mustain will not be charged with felony

BY foxsports • February 3, 2011

Former USC quarterback Mitch Mustain will not be charged with a felony in the wake of his arrest for allegedly selling a prescription narcotic, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.

Mustain, 22, was arrested Tuesday night and was later released on $30,000 bail, local police officials told the paper.

Officers said Mustain was nabbed after he tried to sell Adderall, an amphetamine, to an undercover officer.

Prosecutors opted against a criminal charge since the drug is not considered a controlled substance and Mustain has no prior criminal record.

But the former Parade High School Player of the Year could still face a misdemeanor charge.

"Given that Mustain has no record and that this is his first contact with law enforcement, it is appropriate that it be referred to the city attorney's office for misdemeanor consideration," officials wrote.

Mustain has been preparing for USC's annual "Pro Day" in March, where former Trojans work out in front of NFL scouts ahead of the draft in late April.

The 6ft 3in, 210-pound (95 kilogram) quarterback spent three seasons as a backup at USC after transferring from Arkansas in 2007.
