Green-Beckham Among Five Freshmen Suspended

Posted by willp on October 4, 2012

Mizzou Athletics has suspended Dorial Green-Beckham and two other Mizzou football freshmen after MU Police arrested them last night on suspicion of marijuana possession.

MUPD issued a summons for Green-Beckham along with freshman LB Torey Boozer and freshman WR Levi Copelin and arrested them for possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana.

Mizzou Athletics has released a statement saying: “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.”

Green-Beckham is the only player with game experience, catching his first collegiate touchdown pass last week against UCF.

Brandon Holifield, a freshman tight end and freshman defensive lineman Harold Brantley were present at the scene but were not arrested. Both Brantley and Holifield were suspended along with three arrested players for the Vanderbilt game.
