SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Dorial Green-Beckham, a sophomore football player who led No. 5 Missouri in receptions last season, has been released after a drug arrest.
Police representative Anthony Cunis of Springfield, Mo., said Green-Beckham was arrested early Saturday on ''suspicion of drug activity.'' Cunis said the investigation was ongoing and declined to provide more information regarding the arrest or whether charges had been filed.
He said the department will release more information on the case Monday.
An official with the Greene County Jail confirmed that Green-Beckham was booked Saturday and later released.
Missouri spokesman Chad Moller said the school was ''aware of the situation and working to learn more.''
The 6-foot-6, 225-pound Green-Beckham was considered the top prospect in the nation when he signed a letter of intent with Missouri. He set national prep records of 6,353 career yards receiving and 75 touchdown catches at Springfield Hillcrest High.
Last season, he had 59 receptions with a 15-yard average and 12 touchdowns.
In the SEC championship game against Auburn, he caught six passes for 144 yards and two scores. His 27-yard catch set up Henry Josey's go-ahead score in the Cotton Bowl victory over Oklahoma State.
Green-Beckham was charged in October 2012 with marijuana possession after he and two teammates were reportedly smoking pot in a campus parking lot near Memorial Stadium. All three later pleaded guilty to second-degree trespassing in the case.
