Former Auburn Tigers quarterback Nick Marshall, who led the team to contend for the National Championship during the 2013 season, has been arrested and charged with possessing a “sawed-off shotgun, sawed-off rifle, dangerous weapon or silencer.”
According to reports, police officers arrested Marshall on Wednesday in Columbus, Ga. Police also arrested a girl who was in the car with him named Lenequa Breshay Borders.
Columbus’ WRBL reported that Marshall possessed an “automatic handgun,” which had been modified.
Marshall transferred from the University of Georgia before leading Auburn to the National Championship game against Florida State University, which they lost. He famously completed a 73-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass in the final seconds of the team’s game against Georgia earlier that season.
The 31-year-old Georgia native played in the National Football League for two seasons before signing with a team in the Indoor Football League, then later with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, part of the Canadian Football League.
He is still listed on the team’s roster.
