Three more TCU players charged in drug sweep

Taking a break from the Bobby Petrino scandal, we revisit our attention to another item that, at least for a day or so, looked like at one time it was going to be the news story of the spring.

Although more than a dozen people were arrested in a campus-wide drug sweep at TCU in February, only one football player,  defensive back Devin Johnson, had been formally charged with three cases of delivery between one-quarter ounce and five pounds of marijuana. That’s now changed.

The Tarrant County district attorney’s office said Thursday that an additional 14 people have been prosecuted in connection to the drug sting, three of which were TCU players. They are defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey, linebacker Tanner Brock and offensive tackle Ty Horn.

Brock is charged with three counts of delivering more than a quarter-ounce of marijuana and one count of possessing two ounces or less of marijuana; Horn was charged with delivering more than a quarter-ounce of marijuana and one count of delivering less than a quarter-ounce; Yendry was charged with three counts of delivering more than a quarter-ounce of marijuana in a drug-free zone. He also received one count of delivery of more than a quarter-ounce not in a drug-free zone and two counts of delivering less than a quarter-ounce.

All three were arrested in connection to the sweep. On Feb. 1, head coach Gary Patterson ordered a drug test for his players, five of which reportedly failed. It’s unknown if the four TCU players charged were included in that group and TCU refused to disclose the results of the test.

In a police affidavit, Brock said about 60 players would be “screwed” after the drug test; other accounts said up to 82 players failed. Brock added that he was sure he had failed the drug test as well.
