Ex-BYU QB arrested on cocaine, shoplifting charges


GILBERT, Ariz. — Authorities say former NFL quarterback Max Hall has been accused of shoplifting and narcotics possession near his Arizona hometown.

Gilbert police say the 28-year-old Hall was arrested Friday for allegedly shoplifting from a Best Buy store in Gilbert.

Officers say they searched Hall’s backpack and found several stolen items from Best Buy and a nearby Walmart along with a “personal-use quantity of cocaine.”

Police say Hall was released shortly after his arrest. It was unclear Tuesday if he has a lawyer yet.

Hall, who grew up in Mesa, played college football at Arizona State and BYU before being signed as an undrafted free agent by the Arizona Cardinals.

He played in six games for the Cardinals in 2010 and was with the Canadian Football League’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2013.
