The first of the trials of the Auburn players arrested for armed robbery last year has started. Here’s what star witness (and former star Auburn running back) Michael Dyer brought to the proceedings:
… Dyer testified that his gun was used in the incident, but that he tried to talk Goodwin out of taking it. Dyer and the others talked of “constantly” smoking spice, a synthetic cannabis-like drug. DeAngelo Benton said the drug made him sick. Neiko Thorpe testified that he knew Goodwin, Benton, and Shaun Kitchens were drunk on the night of the alleged robbery.
Benton testified that Dyer was with the four players early in the night, partaking in drink and smoke.
Funny how none of that came up during the regular season. Almost as funny as this:
AU's Gene Chizik no comment on Antonio Goodwin trial, Mike Dyer's gun, DeAngelo Benton's drug testimony 'out of respect to judicial process'—

I wonder if Malzahn knows that his star transfer is packing heat. He’s probably respectful about that, too.
