September is on our doorstep, and football is the air … wait, those two are filled with drugs. Yes, a former corrections officer was arrested and charged with a third-degree felony for allegedly throwing footballs filled with drugs over a fence into the Richland Correctional Institution in Mansfield, Ohio.

Even Tim Tebow had a better day on Sunday than Janine A. Fulton, 43, of Bucyrus. Tebow only had one interception. Fulton had two.

Janine A. Fulton, 43, of Bucyrus, was arrested on a third-degree felony charge of illegal conveyance of drugs or other prohibited items onto grounds of a detention facility or institution. METRICH Commander Lt. Ken Coontz said Fulton had prescription drugs and marijuana and could face more charges.

“I was surprised at the amount of contraband and drugs that can be put in a football,” Coontz said, adding the two inmates in question also may face charges.

In her resume, unearthed by Busted Coverage, Fulton says she is “an inflexible, dependable person” who has “a certificate in marijuana testing” and is “experienced in Microsoft Windows.”

    Experienced in Microsoft Windows, eh? Why not just go ahead, call yourself “proficient” and pad the resume a little?
