Former USC Trojans and Los Angeles Raiders quarterback Todd Marinovich was arrested after he was found naked and in possession of marijuana in someone else's backyard, according to The Orange County Register.

Irvine, California police commander Mike Hallinan told the Register that police received a complaint about a "naked person" on Friday at about 9 p.m. Marinovich, 47, was later found in the backyard of an Irvine home "carrying the items in a brown bag."

The 1991 first-round NFL Draft pick was cited for trespassing, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, the Register reported.

Marinovich has a long history of drug abuse, including during his time with the Trojans and Raiders, and he has been arrested numerous times for marijuana and cocaine possession. His pro football career ended as a member of the Los Angeles Avengers of the Arena Football League in 2001.

According to the Register, Marinovich was arrested for drug possession in Newport Beach in 2005, and he was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest in 2007.
