Green-Beckham cleared after marijuana mix-up

Published Add your comment

Dorial Green-Beckham was arrested January 10th when two scales, a grinder, and a pound of marijuana were found in the car he was a passenger in.

Police arrested the Missouri Tigers wide receiver, along with two other men, at the scene and the story made national news.

However, it is being reported that the sophomore student will not face any punishment after court documents revealed Green-Beckham had no illegal substances or drug paraphernalia on him at the time of the incident.

While one of the other men involved, Patrick Prouty, told the officers that the marijuana was his. 

Green-Beckham admitted to noticing the smell of marijuana when entering the car but contested that he never smoked any of the illegal substance, telling police officers that he had only been in the car in order to get a ride home from a friend's house.

The Tigers player missed two games in his freshman season, against Vanderbilt and Alabama, after being suspended by the program after an arrest for drugs possession.

However it seems the player will face no further sanctions from the school this time as there is no evidence he broke any law in this instance.
