Ratcliff? Are they remaking The Harder They Come?
The University of Miami football players have cleaned up their act in a big way, but everyonce in a while another of the school’s sports’ athletes keep the “Thug U” image alive. Last night, 19-year-old Frankie Ratcliff, a freshman on the school’s storied baseball program was arrested for trying to sell marijuana to undercover cops on campus. Once they searched his apartment they also found steroids.
Ratcliff was arrested last night around 9 pm after trying to sell the drugs to undercover cops. Apparently he was offering 21 grams for $220. He signed a consent form allowing police to search his apartment. There police found more pot, totaling 101 grams, and 19 vials of steroids.
Ratcliff now faces charges of possession with the intent to sell within one thousand feet of a school, possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis and possession of a controlled substance, and is being held on $20,000 bond.
