For the second time in the last 15 months, Mizzou football standout Dorial Green-Beckham has been arrested on drug charges. Springfield police arrested Green-Beckham and two other men Friday night, after police found about a pound of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia in their car during a traffic stop.
Green-Beckham was released from the Greene County jail this morning, and has not been charged with a crime.
The Tiger wideout was booked on a charge of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, a felony if he is charged.
In a text message to the Springfield News-Leader, Green-Beckham's adoptive father, John Beckham, said their family feels confident the investigation will result in no charges against Green-Beckham.
The driver of the vehicle, identified as John McDaniel, told the News-Leader the marijuana didn't belong to him or Green-Beckham.
The Tiger wideout was also arrested in October of 2012 when he and two teammates were allegedly smoking marijuana in a parking lot outside Faurot Field. Green-Beckham pleaded guilty to a trespassing violation and served a one-game suspension.
Green-Beckham led the Tigers in receptions and touchdowns this season. He finished second on the team in receiving yards.
