Former LSU football coach's son arrested

East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies say Michael DiNardo, the son of former LSU football coach Gerry DiNardo, faces felony drug and firearm charges.

The Advocate reports Michael DiNardo, a 21-year-old student at LSU, was booked Wednesday with intent to distribute marijuana and possessing a firearm with drugs. He was also booked with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Deputies say a package, smelling of marijuana, at the Bennington Avenue post office sparked an investigation and led to the arrest of Michael DiNardo.

Authorities executed a search warrant at DiNardo's address. An arrest affidavit says officers uncovered several plastic bags of marijuana, a scale and two firearms. One of the firearms was an AK-47.

It was unclear whether Michael DiNardo has an attorney.
