Missouri Wide Receiver Arrested on Drug Charges
University of Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has been suspended from Mizzou’s football program following his arrest on Wednesday night (October 4). The freshman and former No. 1 draft pick in the nation was taken into custody by the MU Police Department with two other Mizzou football players on on charges of possession of 35 grams or less of marijuana.
According to MU Police Department spokesman Brian Weimer, police found Green-Beckham with freshman linebacker Torey Boozer and freshman wide receiver Levi Copelin in a white Lincoln Navigator parked in a lot on campus. Officers noticed the odor of marijuana when they approached the vehicle and arrested the three athletes after an investigation. They were taken in for processing and later released on a signature summons.
Mizzou’s team spokesperson Chad Moller released a statement saying the players would be suspended for a game and that “disciplinary measures will be handled internally.”
The Tigers are scheduled to host Vanderbilt this Saturday, October 6 in Columbia.
