At the scene, officers found Hagemo and one other person. After receiving consent to search the car, they found drug paraphernalia of a drug user, including syringes and a drug kit. One of the syringes appeared to be filled with heroin, according to reports.

Police are still waiting to forward the case to prosecutors for charges.

Hagemo had a strong freshman season for the Gophers in 2004-05, scoring 10 points in 30 games. He was drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes that summer.

But a shoulder injury caused Hagemo to miss all but three games the following season. After his shoulder never recovered properly, he was forced to retire the following year.
