Far Eastern University (FEU) authorities remain silent over the drug-related incident that surfaced involving American Anthony Hargrove and Canadian friend and teammate, Adam Mohammed, for alleged possession of marijuana.
FEU representative to the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) board Anton Montinola expressed his disbelief and didn’t make any comment since the investigation is still ongoing.
“He (Montinola) doesn’t want to react yet,” said an official of FEU close to Montinola, who requested anonymity since there is no final judgment yet. “Of course, that’s not okay but let’s see.”
Both Hargrove and Mohammad, were caught by operatives of the Manila Police District (MPD) Sampaloc Station located along G. Tuazon at the vicinity of Nicanor Reyes street near FEU Morayta, Manila. Both are still detained in the precinct.
SPO1 Oliver Olarte of Station 4 MPD said they confiscated a burned cigarette stick and one heat-sealed transparent small plastic containing dried leaves, which they suspect as marijuana.
A former athlete from the university, who refused not to be named, said Hargrove has no drug related issues in the past.
Inboundpass tried to contact newly-appointed head coach Nash Racela for comment, but responded only in a text message that said: “Wala pa naman details. Baka naman inosente”.
