Only a few hours after setting a program record for most rushing yards by a freshman against Tennessee, Mizzou running back Damarea Crockett was arrested on suspicion of possession of fewer than 35 grams of marijuana, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Dave Matter.

Crockett was arrested in a campus parking lot a little after 4 a.m. Possession of fewer than 35 grams of marijuana is a Class A misdemeanor in Missouri.

According to Matter, a spokesperson said Crockett’s discipline will “be handled internally.”

In Mizzou’s 63-37 loss to Tennessee on Saturday, Crockett rushed for 225 yards with a touchdown. The Little Rock, Ark., native has 1,062 rushing yards this year.
