Missouri star WR Dorial Green-Beckham has been suspended “indefinitely” for a violation of team rules, after allegedly being involved in an incident in Columbia on Sunday.
The Columbia Missourian said: “Columbia Police sergeant Joe Bernhard said Monday morning that Green-Beckham was not arrested over the weekend, but according to residents at Brookside Townhomes, Green-Beckham was involved in an incident there sometime between 2 and 3 a.m. Sunday.”
He was arrested in a car that contained a pound of marijuana in January.
Mizzou coach Gary Pinkel said: “It’s unfortunate, but it’s the right thing to do for our football program, for the athletic department, and also for Dorial…..“We have high standards related to the expectations that come along with being a Missouri Tiger, and Dorial has not met those recently. Representing Mizzou and our fans is a privilege, and we’ll work with him during this process. It’s been disappointing to have this, and other issues which have taken place lately. It’s frustrating, because we work very hard to instill responsibility and discipline in our young men so that our program represents Mizzou the right way. These actions aren’t representative of those expectations, and we are addressing these issues head on.”
DG-B is said to be co-operating with police with the investigation about the marijuana. The car was not Green-Beckham’s.
