Todd Marinovich back in jail

marinovich_mug.jpgFormer USC and Los Angeles Raider bust Todd Marinovich has been arrested again. In all, Marinovich has nine cases against him in Orange County, Calif. -- most of them drug-related.

This time, the former first-round draft pick was nabbed for failure to appear in drug court.

From TMZ.com:
"Marinovich was scheduled to face charges of possession of dangerous drugs, possession of a hypodermic needle, and resisting arrest.

"The 39-year-old was arrested outside of his mother's home and hauled off to jail -- where he's currently being held with no bail."

To be sure, this is a sad case -- especially when you consider that there was a time when a Todd Marinovich jersey made for a solid Christmas present:
