Former Buc Keith McCants arrested on drug charge

ST. PETERSBURG — Former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Keith McCants was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on Saturday afternoon, charged with felony possession of cocaine and resisting an officer.

Bail was set at $4,000 on those charges, but McCants was also being held on a warrant from Alabama, according to an arrest report. The report said he had failed to appear in court there on a controlled substance charge.

McCants. 43, of 4224 28th St. N, was a first-round draft pick in 1990 and played three years with the Buccaneers as a linebacker and defensive end. But he was released by the team in 1993 and in recent years has had a series of run-ins with police.

He was arrested by St. Petersburg police in December on a cocaine possession charge. He also has had a string of arrests in Alabama, most of them drug-related.
