Mizzou wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham was arrested last night for possession of marijuana. Two other freshman teammates, Levi Copelin and Torey Boozer, were also arrested.

The three have been suspended from playing in Saturday's game.

The arrests, for possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana, occured Wednesday at about 11:50 p.m. after MU Police officers on patrol noticed the group sitting in car. The vehicle was parked in Lot G, which is south of football stadium.

Two others who were present, but not arrested, have also been suspended for one game. All five will face the same team discipline.

Chad Moller, Mizzou Athletics media relations director, shared the following statement:

"We're aware of the incident and have addressed it. All individuals involved have been immediately suspended from the program for one game. All other disciplinary measures will be handled internally, and there will be no further comment."
