On Jan. 10, Missouri Tigers wide receiver, Dorial Green-Beckham was arrested with two other men. Green-Beckham was a passenger in the car where police found two scales, a grinder and marijuana.

The driver had told police officers he had smoked marijuana before the arrest with Green-Beckham and the other passenger before cuffs were slapped on all three men.

However, court documents show that Green-Beckham had no illegal substances or drug paraphernalia on him at the time of his arrest and one of the men, Patrick Prouty, told the arresting officers that the marijuana was his.

Green-Beckham told police that he had smelled marijuana upon entering the car, but he claims to have never smoked. He told police that he was simply in the car to get a ride home from a friends house.

For a past marijuana incident, Green-Beckham was suspended for one game. However, there is no evidence that he broke any laws in this case and he should be able to get off without any further punishment from the university.
