Green-Beckham's Friends Take Blame for Pot Found in Car
SPRINGFIELD (AP) - Two men arrested along with Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham have told police the pound of marijuana found in their car did not belong to the star football player.
Criminal charges have not been filed after the Springfield native and two friends were arrested in January on suspicion of felony drug distribution. Police say they found the pot and other drug paraphernalia in the trunk of a Jeep Cherokee driven by John McDaniel.
The Springfield News-Leader reports a probable cause statement shows that Patrick Prouty said he owned the pot but said it was for personal use. McDaniel said he had hidden one gram of marijuana in the car's glove box.
Green-Beckham was charged in October 2012 with marijuana possession in Columbia and later pleaded guilty to second-degree trespassing.
