It was an illegal forward pass, but the penalty may be five years instead of five yards.
Jason Russell, 35, of Madison was arrested Thursday after throwing a football filled with over a pound of marijuana over the fences at the Yazoo County Correctional facility. The football also contained tobacco, rolling papers and lighters.
