Dai’Jean Dixon, Nicholls State University football player, 20, was arrested by the Thibodaux Police Department for an alleged possession with intent to distribute marijuana charge on Saturday after 84 grams of the suspected substance were discovered in his car, according to a police report. The arrest stemmed from a traffic stop for speeding in the 600 block of East 1st Street when officers detected the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle’s interior.
Dixon admitted to smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol prior to the stop, but denied being in possession of any marijuana at first. Dixon then submitted to and passed all Standardized Field Sobriety Testing.
After denying requests to search the vehicle, a K-9 later alerted officers to the odor of narcotics.

Corey Sutton, a star wide receiver for Appalachian State, was charged with marijuana possession last week.
Sutton, a redshirt junior, was arrested June 7 following a traffic stop, according to a police report from the Boone Police Department.
“We are aware of the situation and it will be handled internally,” Coach Eli Drinkwitz of Appalachian State said through Joey Jones, associate athletics director of strategic communication.
According to the police report, Corey Sutton was pulled over at 9:48 p.m. because the left headlight of his gray Camaro wasn’t on. The report says that Sutton’s car smelled of marijuana.
Upon questioning, the report said, Sutton admitted to both smoking previously and having more marijuana in the center console of the car.
Officers would eventually search the vehicle after, according to the report, Sutton “consumed the marijuana in the center console” while the booking officer spoke to additional police officers who arrived at the traffic stop.
The search prompted the discovery of more marijuana, leading to Sutton’s arrest.
Wan’Dale Robinson, Husker freshman wide receiver/running back, was cited on suspicion of possession of less than an ounce of marijuana Sunday night, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln spokeswoman said Monday.
UNL police were called to a room in the University Suites near 18th and R Streets after a community service officer smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the room, spokeswoman Leslie Reed said.
Three people were in the room, Reed said, but Robinson was the only one cited. The marijuana was found in Robinson’s vehicle during a search, she said.
Reed said that because it was a first offense, the citation is considered an infraction, not a misdemeanor.
Robinson’s court appearance is scheduled for July 9, Reed said.
A statement from the UNL Athletic Department said, “We are aware of the situation and are addressing it.”
