A lack of evidence has given TCU wide receiver Brandon Carter a sigh of relief. Previously charged for possession of marijuana in April, the Associated Press reports Carter had the charge dropped at the request of the prosecutor due to insufficient evidence to continue pursuing legal action.
Carter was arrested in April after police pulled him over while driving a Lexus belonging to his friend, Alex Harris. A license plate check pulled up a warrant hit on Harris for previous charges. Both were charged for possession of marijuana after police discovered under two ounces of marijuana in the car. While Carter is getting charges dropped, Harris will not have the charges dropped against him.
Carter has been out of action for TCU this offseason due to academic concerns. Now that drug-related charges have been dropped against Carter, perhaps he will be able to focus on getting back involved with the Horned Frogs this fall. The wide receiver position could use Carter back in the mix if eligible to play. Carter could be one of the top receivers for the TCU offense after taking some time off to deal with some personal issues last fall.
