Montana State defensive backs Darren Gardenhire and Naijiel Hale are indefinitely suspended following their arrests for allegedly dealing Xanax.
According to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, both players were arrested Wednesday. Hale, the son of late rapper Nate Dogg, is facing two felony counts of distribution of dangerous drugs and a misdemeanor charge. Gardenhire is facing one felony charge.
Another student who isn’t a member of the football team was also arrested for allegedly selling the drug.
According to the charges, Hale set up deals with a police informant on two occasions. One of those times he referred the informant to Gardenhire for a transaction.
Hale joined the Montana State program after he was dismissed from Washington in the summer of 2015, reportedly for disciplinary reasons. He was a three-star recruit in the class of 2014 for the Huskies and made two starts that season as a true freshman. Hale played in just two games in 2016 for the Bobcats and had 12 tackles while Gardenhire didn’t record a statistic.
