Igor Olshansky: The Second Former Miami Dolphins Player Arrested This Week

Former Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Igor Olshansky was arrested yesterday afternoon -- the day after he was waived by the team -- becoming the second former Fin to be arrested this week, after ex-wide receiver David Boston was popped for allegedly punching a woman.

Olshansky, 29, was one of 280 people arrested during a two-day operation this week by the Broward Sheriff's Office.

According to an arrest report, the cops walked into his condo and found the six-foot-five, 300-pound Olshansky rolling a joint at his kitchen table.

The BSO's Dani Moschella says she can't tell the Pulp exactly why the cops were in his condo, only that they were there as part of the drug-enforcement operation.

The report goes on to say that Olshansky also had a clear bag with 19 grams of a substance that tested positive for marijuana that was sitting on the table in front of him.

Olshansky was transported to the Broward County Jail on one count of possessing less than 20 grams of marijuana but has since been released.

Olshansky was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 2004 and played there until spending the 2009 and 2010 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys.

He played with the Dolphins for eight games this season, recording only four tackles. He was waived by the team on Wednesday, along with kicker Shayne Graham.
