According to reports from the LA Times, Orange County Register and TMZ, Kings center Jarret Stoll was arrested on Friday at the Wet Republic pool at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas when a pat-down resulted in a security guard finding a plastic baggie that contained powder and gel caps.
Via the OC Register, which obtained a copy of the police report, Stoll “consented to a voluntary pat down” and confirmed that a white powder inside the baggie was cocaine:
Per the report, a Las Vegas police detective tested the powder on-site and it tested positive for cocaine. When asked by the detective if the powder in the baggie was cocaine, Stoll said, “Yes,’’ according to the arrest report.
Toxicology reports on the drugs are still pending, per the Register’s report.
Acording to both the LA Times and the Register, Stoll’s first court hearing has been set for July 1.
Via the TMZ report, Stoll was carrying 3.3 grams of cocaine and 8.1 grams of “Molly,” a party drug similar to ecstasy.
Stoll is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 when his contract with the Kings expires. In 12 NHL seasons – five with Edmonton and seven with Los Angeles – the 32-year-old has totaled 140 goals and 379 points in 792 games and captured the 2012 and 2014 Stanley Cup Championships.
