Fox sportscaster Bill Maas arrested on drug and weapons charges

UPI News Service, 07/08/2007 

Bill Maas, a college All-America selection, former NFL star and Fox TV sportscaster, has been arrested in Peoria, Ill., on drug and weapons charges.

Maas, 45, and Sarah J. Murphy, 27, were pulled over Friday in a routine State Police Department roadside check when police said they found a handgun, marijuana, cocaine, and 28 pills of ecstasy, The Peoria Journal Star reported.

The two were booked on charges of marijuana and controlled substance possession, and Maas was booked on a charge of unlawful use of a weapon.

They were being held in the Tazewell County Jail, awaiting a hearing.

Mass -- a two-time all-America selection at the University of Pittsburgh -- was the Kansas City Chief's No. 1 draft pick in 1984, and played for the Chiefs until 1992, before playing one season with the Green Bay Packers in 1993. He was NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1984, and was named to the Pro Bowl in 1986 and 1987.

He joined Fox in 1996.

Maas earned a degree in administrative justice from Pitt, Fox said on its Web site.
