LEBANON, OH (FOX19)- Former Miami University football player Zachary Marshall has been arraigned on felony drug charges and is being held on a $10,000 bond.

Marshall is charged with a fifth-degree felony for allegedly altering a prescription for Tylenol III, a Schedule III drug, at a Mason pharmacy in May 2010. Assistant Prosecutor Matt Nolan says he had a legitimate prescription for 20 pills, but changed the amount to 80 pills.

Marshall was supposed to be arraigned on Wednesday in Warren County, but wasn't because he was in a Butler County courtroom facing a probation violation charge. A Butler County court found probable cause that he did violate his probation, and a hearing was set for July 21st.

In May 2008 had entered a woman's room at a Miami dormitory, flopped down on top of her and placed a pillow over her face before leaving the room after the two struggled.

Marshall said he had been binge drinking at an Oxford bar and at a friend's house and had wandered into the wrong room by mistake.

He was convicted of burglary in October 2008 following a three-day jury trial and sentenced in November 2008 to 60 days in jail.
