Former No. 1 recruit one of three Mizzou players arrested, suspended

TCU quarterback Casey Pachall owned the top spot on our “Days without an arrest” ticker for a solid three hours or so.

Not to be outdone, a trio of Missouri football players have reportedly gotten into trouble with the law as well. The Columbia Tribune reports that 2012’s No. 1 overall recruit Dorial Green-Beckham, along with wide receiver Levi Copelin and linebacker Tory Boozer, has been arrested for pot possession.

According to the report, “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.”

Defensive tackle Harold Brantley and tight end  Brandon Holifield were also in the car, but not arrested. Team spokesman Chad Moller told the Tribune that all five will be suspended for Saturday’s game against Vanderbilt. Copelin and Boozer are expected to redshirt this season.

Green-Beckham has seven catches for 128 yards and a touchdown this season.

    Mizzou is now officially a member of the SEC.

    I laugh at how marijuana has all these laws, but people keep smoking tobacco without restrictions. Stupid double standard.

    Also, I wish I had a Lincoln Navigator when I was in college.

    BTW, just who was the owner of that $20K vehicle?

    Ah shit! And Vandy is no pushover either. Hope all these players get headed in the right direction. As for the Lincoln Navigator, I hope the owner had rich parents and that is all

    Did someone report them missing?

    Just another SEC school, AND NOTHING HAPPENS! Where is Mark Emmert!!!

    Busted for smokin weed in your ride, parked on a campus lot? Damn, times have changed. I remember a Comparative Lit professor roll and light-up in front of the class! Even asked if anyone had any E-Z Wider. Was a anti-war Hippy in the Sixtes, but still….

    Doesn’t matter if you think weed should or should not be legal. Simple fact is it is illegal regardless of personal opinion. Therefore it just show pure lack of personal responsibility these guys have. Free ride, obviously free navigator (come on SEC, we know) and a potentially very lucrative future. All you have to do is not do illegal things and avoid getting arrested. When you can’t do that which these individuals cannot do??? I have zero sympathy.

    Just plain dumb… obviously none of them read, or they’d have seen this movie before and been smart enough to avoid it…. maybe

    Very disappointed in this post. Only TWO cheap shots at the SEC. Come on people! Man-up. If there was ever an opening for a freebie, this was it. Makes it even a better cheap-shot opportunity considering Missouri just joined the conference. The one-liners should be endless! Sad performance by the SEC haters. I expect better.
