ReJean Wright, a Nicholls State University football player and a passenger in his car are in trouble with the law.

Mandeville police stopped 20-year-old ReJean Wright and 19-year-old Kierra Murphy because of an expired inspection sticker on Highway 22 on April 21.

Investigators said the officer smelled marijuana and therefore inspected the vehicle.

Chief Gerald Sticker said the officer found a 9 mm pistol, an AK-style rifle, an AR-style, .22-caliber rifle and spent shell casings.

Sticker said officers also found around 100 rounds of ammunition, ski masks, gloves, marijuana and a crowbar.

While Sticker said he could not connect the duo to any crimes, he believes they were up to no good.

“With everything we saw, these individuals weren’t going to choir practice,” Sticker said “There is some wrongdoing at some level.”

Wright and Murphy were booked on drug possession charges. Wright was also booked on possession of burglary tools charges.

Nicholls State University issued the following statement Thursday:

“We have recently been made aware of the alleged incident. Mr. Wright has been immediately and indefinitely suspended from the football program while the legal and student judicial affairs processes are ongoing.”
