Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham and freshman teammates Levi Copelin and Torey Boozer were arrested last night on suspicion of possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana. Team spokesman Chad Moller said the players will be suspended for Saturday's game against Vanderbilt.
University of Missouri police captain Brian Weimer said an officer on patrol found the players at 11:49 p.m. in a white Lincoln Navigator in Lot G south of Memorial Stadium. Weimer said the officer detected the odor of marijuana and when the players got out of the car, the officer found marijuana.
Copelin and Boozer are expected to redshirt this season, but Green-Beckham, the nation's No. 1-ranked recruit, is a significant contributor who caught an 80-yard touchdown pass in last week's victory over Central Florida.
