NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – The Orange County District Attorney's (OCDA) Office filed drug and trespass charges today against a former star quarterback. Todd Marvin Marinovich, 47, Irvine, is charged with five misdemeanor counts including attempted aggravated trespass of a residence, trespass with interference of property rights, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and public nudity, and one infraction for possession of marijuana. If convicted, Marinovich faces a maximum sentence of three years in Orange County jail. The defendant is scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 9, 2016, at 8:30 a.m. in Department H-8, Harbor Justice Center, Newport Beach.

Marinovich was a professional quarterback with various American and Canadian football leagues between 1991 and 2001.

Sometime before 9:00 p.m. on Aug. 19, 2016, the Irvine Police Department (IPD) received a phone call from an Irvine resident reporting a naked man on the Venta Spur Trail near a home on Bluecoat.

Marinovich is accused of leaving a brown bag containing methamphetamine, marijuana, syringes, a marijuana pipe, and his wallet and driver's license on a nearby trail.

At around that same time, Marinovich is accused of being naked and trespassing into the backyard of the Bluecoat home belonging to someone unknown to him and attempting to gain access into the residence by trying to open the sliding back door.

Deputy District Attorney Danielle Mosh of the Harbor Justice Center is prosecuting the case.
