Mitch Mustain arrested Tuesday in San Fernando Valley


Former USC quarterback Mitch Mustain was arrested Tuesday night on suspicion of selling prescription narcotics, according to reports appearing in multiple media outlets.

Mustain, 22, was eventually released from jail, however, after posting a $30,000 bail, Los Angeles Police Department officials told Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times.

The arrest reportedly occurred at 8:10 p.m. Tuesday. The former Trojan signal caller was later booked on a felony narcotics charge at a West Valley-area police station.

In 2010, Mustain had served as the backup for Matt Barkley and started the team’s Nov. 27 game against Notre Dame, which resulted in a 20-16 victory for the Irish.
