If this is you or me: jail time.

Millionaire = probation/ community service (paid for by his new team).

That’s a fine for the vast majority of first time offenders.

Always like Stoll, but man, what a bone-headed decision on his part.  I’m glad the Kings are parting ways with him.  With all the young guys coming in, the Kings don’t need an influence like that on the team.

And, hopefully it’s a wakeup call for anyone else that’s even thinking of taking some coke or ecstasy.
