This has got to be the biggest bust this far for Lakeview kops. According to the paper, the suspect was jailed while Eric Meents, whom was caught with ten lbs of weed and nineteen lbs of shrooms was not. Is this because Meents is a former NBA player, the former not?
Once again, an apparent case of selective prosecution by Lake County.

@ walker, I went to school with Scott Meents and was wondering what happen. I saw he got caught but never heard if he was charged. Any idea? When I first read the story I figured he would buy his way out of it (if that's possible).

Yeah he was charged alright, two felony counts each DCS and PCS for the shrooms and pot, for a total of 4 felony's. He's could be look'in at some serious time in the hole 'bout eighty years if they go max sentence. Thats fu*ked up beyond reason me thinks!

Last I heard he was waiting/fighting extradition to Lake County from somewhere in Arizona? I haven't heard anything since about the end of October. As far as I know he was either successful in his motion for ex-parte or the thugs in Arizona disappeared him.

I think he was most likely set up, as this is not the first time. Lake County is probably the most corrupt county in Oregon for it's population base. For years terrorists from the IRA would find refuge there under the auspice of the Federal Government, now it's a haven for inside job people, protected by the same.

Hey Joe, hope your boy ain't affiliated with them, cause if so he's most likely been shut down, if you get my drift....

Yeah Walker eighty years would be a pretty dam harsh sentence. Although I really don't think he was set up. I followed his career for awhile and was noticing he was not doing to well. Great player in high school but not really cutting it as a pro. I had a feeling something like this was going to happen. Seems as though some people who set their sights on a single goal their whole life and end up not cutting the mustard then turn to some sort of illegal activity later on down the road. Having things handed to you on a silver platter your whole life tends to make one think they are beyond getting a real job like the rest of us.
Thanks for the update.

Max you got it wrong. He served his time for his DV assault charge but he did not serve a day for his drug bust. Last I knew Shrooms were still illegal in any state. How about blaming a guy for trying to make a buck the ILLEGAL way....risking 80 years in jail doesnt really sound easy. I heard he became an informant and ratted out the supplier. Got him a hall pass. But, as Walker says....prob just a matter of time before his supplier gets out...

You all are terrible. You guessed that this would happen? Because his game wasn't the same? Why dont we step back and think maybe he had personal stuff going on. With his wife and his family? No ones knows why he turned to the drug life but really it's none of your business. He may have played pro ball but he is just like you and I. People make mistakes and he paid for his. The man has to live with that decision the rest of his life. He has a young son and he doesn't need to be reading about you guys holding on to his dads past. Scott is a good guy. Maybe it took him a little while to accept the fact he can't live the high life anymore. But he is going great now and working his ass off to support himself and his boy.
