Kudos to Lauren Bertolini and Matt Gelb of Syracuse Univ.’s DAILY ORANGE as they break the news that Todd Marinovich’s younger brother Mikhail, who plays for the SU football team, was “charged with criminal mischief in the fourth degree after allegedly breaking into the Manley Field House equipment room Sunday morning.”
Somehow, a skateboard and meth were not involved. Instead, the younger Marinovich is accused of breaking “a rolling metal gate to gain entrance to the room, as well as the cylinder lock that held the gate closed.”
But of course, you just knew there had to be some sort of mind-altering substance involved in the alleged crime (and there was).
Marinovich, who literally just enrolled at SU as a freshman was “impaired by alcohol” at the time of the break-in.
Knowing his brother’s long and
illustrious notorious past, Orange fans might want to brace themselves for the next four years. If Mikhail lasts that long.
And know, building a skateboard ramp to the jock dorm probably isn’t the best idea to keep Mikhail calmed down and brother Todd out of town.
