Federal agents say in recently released court documents that a former University of Montana quarterback caught up in a medical marijuana raid contemplated bribing police and politicians.

But Jason Washingtonof Missoula says the allegation is “ridiculous” and blown out of proportion by agents overhearing a running joke among friends.

Federal agents say they were monitoring Washington’s communications before raiding his and other medical marijuana businesses in November.

A recently unsealed affidavit Washington and an associate discussed bribing local and federal law enforcement, along with state politicians.

A special agent with the Drug Enforcement Agency told the court he believes Washington and an associate would eventually use their profits to try to do so.

But the affidavit gives no indication that Washington ever attempted such a scheme.
