Marinovich who is an Irvine resident was cited for trespassing and possession of marijuana. He is no longer in custody.

Irvine Police Cmdr. Mike Hallinan said Monday that Marinovich was arrested Friday night after a call saying a naked man was on a hiking trail near homes. The officers found him in a backyard holding a brown bag containing marijuana and a substance that appeared to be meth but police are awaiting lab results.

Marinovich was a first-round draft pick out of Southern California and played for the Raiders from 1991-93. But is widely considered one of the NFL’s biggest draft busts.

The former USC star has been arrested a number of times on drug charges since his time with the Raiders.
