How do you replace the "stache" in Spokane? With shrooms and pot man...

According to ESPN's Andy Katz, Gonzaga players Josh Heytvelt and Theo Davis have been suspended indefinitely from the team after their arrest Friday night for investigation of drug possession.

Police said they found marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms in their car. Both players were booked into Spokane County Jail for investigation of drug possession, The Associated Press reported.

Cheney Police Commander Rick Campbell said the amount of marijuana was only enough for a misdemeanor, but that possession of mushrooms is a felony.

Police also said they pulled the car over because its tail lights were not working. Campbell said officers smelled marijuana and searched the car, and the players were cooperative.

"It was close to midnight. They needed to have their lights on," Campbell said.

From a basketball perspective, this suspension couldn't have come at a worse time, the Bulldogs are currently tied with Santa Clara atop the WCC and fighting for a spot in the NCAA tournament. Heytvelt is the teams second leading scorer and their leading rebounder. Davis is going to be red shirted because he is set to have surgery to repair damaged ligaments in his shoulder.

With all the arrest of athletes these days, I have one thing to say about these two guys...Shit son, I wanna party with these guys.
