Kentucky safety Marcus Walker was arrested May 24 on drug trafficking charges, the wild details of which are included in a new report from SEC Country. Walker was found in possession of $95,000 in cash, cocaine, and a whole bunch of marijuana.
With his court date scheduled for Wednesday, June 20, Walker is no longer a part of the Wildcats football team. Less than a week after Walker was arrested, coach Mark Stoops dismissed him from the squad.
The late May arrest occurred at 4:40 a.m. When police arrived on the scene hours earlier, they found $430 in Walker's pockets. Their search led to much, much more, uncovering more than $70,000 in a bag by a closet and another $25,000 in a box in a bedroom. All the cash reportedly belonged to Walker, though he shared the townhome with others.
Furthermore, police found nearly 53 grams of cocaine in a kitchen cabinet, in addition to digital scales and packing materials. They also uncovered 5 pounds of weed throughout the house. One officer reported that he found three clear bags "approximately the size of a soccer ball full of marijuana."
Police were called to the scene after a confrontation between a man and woman. When they arrived, they found "the living room was in a state of disarray with all the furniture and television strewn across the floor along with marijuana, cash, and blood." Walker's roommate, Tavon Wells, faces the same charges as the former Wildcat: trafficking marijuana and cocaine.
Police also reportedly found several $20 bills and baggies of weed outside the residence.
Walker was not a major on-field contributor for Kentucky. Last year he mainly played on the special-teams unit and totaled five tackles in 12 games.
