Jordan Schafer (He's An Astro, People) Arrested On Weed Charge

Jordan Schafer -- who you can be forgiven for not knowing is a centerfielder for the Astros -- was arrested early this morning on felony marijuana-possession charges in Tampa, Flordia.

Tampabay.com reports that he was nabbed in a Cheesecake Factory about 12:30 a.m. today.

Schafer, 25, came to the Astros in the Michael Bourn giveaway. Three years ago, as a mminor-leaguer, he was suspended for taking banned performance-enhancing drugs.

Weed would no doubt enhance the Cheesecake Factory dining experience, so some things never change, we guess.

Schafer played 30 games for the `Stros this year, batting .245 for them.
