The head coach for the men’s basketball team at Colorado State University says he is aware of former UofL forward and now Colorado State Ram Chane Behanan’s citation for drug possession this morning in Louisville and the news is “very concerning.”

Coach Larry Eustachy issued this statement to cn|2:

“I am aware of media reports that Chane has been issued a citation. We are working to gather more information. Everyone associated with our program is held to a high standard, and that includes personal conduct on and off the court. We work tirelessly to recruit young men of high character who will work hard in the classroom, help our team win and represent CSU well. This news is very concerning.”

Behanan was cited early Wednesday morning by Louisville Metro Police for possession of marijuana. At 1:15 a.m. on Wednesday near 17th and Broadway, LMPD pulled over a vehicle in which Behanan was a passenger. The officer smelled marijuana and asked Behanan if he had marijuana on him. Behanan replied yes, according to LMPD.

Behanan committed to Colorado State in late January after being dismissed from the Cards team on Dec. 30 for violating university rules. Later in February, Behanan admitted that drug use was behind his dismissal. He went to Houston to spend time with John Lucas, a former NBA player and coach who runs a drug and alcohol treatment program.
