SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Missouri receiver Dorial Green-Beckham was arrested in southwest Missouri after an officer found about a pound of marijuana in the vehicle he was in with two other men.
Green-Beckham, a sophomore who led No. 5 Missouri in receptions last season, and the other men were released without formal charges after their arrest late Friday, Springfield police said in a statement.
Green-Beckham, John W. McDaniel and Patrick Prouty, were pulled over late Friday because the vehicle McDaniel was driving had expired license plates, police said. The statement said the officer smelled marijuana in the vehicle and found "approximately a pound of marijuana and assorted drug paraphernalia" in the vehicle.
Green-Beckham, McDaniel and Prouty were booked into the Greene County jail for distribution of a controlled substance. All three were released without bond or charges while the case is investigated.
Missouri spokesman Chad Moller said the school was "aware of the situation and working to learn more."
