BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - 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 (http://bit.ly/1nHIuKb ) 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.
