So many times athletes get into school and just don’t know how to act, it’s hard to adjust for some of them. Bethune-Cookman’s Marc Mack was recently dismissed from the school after having possession of a fire-arm and marijuana.



DAYTONA BEACH — A Bethune-Cookman basketball player arrested last week on charges of possessing marijuana and a concealed firearm has been dismissed from the university, a school spokesman said. Bryan Harvey, B-CU’s assistant athletic director for communications, said Tuesday that sophomore forward Marc Mack was dismissed as a result of the school’s student judiciary process. Harvey said Mack has until Wednesday to appeal the decision. Mack, 21, was arrested at 9:37 p.m. Thursday after police pulled over his 2008 Jeep at Sickler Park. According to the arrest report, police found marijuana in the Jeep, and there was a loaded .45-caliber pistol under the driver’s seat. According to the report, there were three other people in the vehicle. Police said a green, leafy substance was found on the passenger’s armrest and the center console of the vehicle contained two marijuana blunts. The Jeep was searched after the occupants were removed, and police said they found the gun out of a holster under the driver’s seat. Mack did not have a concealed weapons license, police said. Mack, a 6-foot-6, 195-pound forward from Chicago, started 23 games and played in all 34 games this past season for the Wildcats (14-20). He averaged 3.1 points and 2.7 rebounds per game.
