TCU Football Players Arrested in Big Drug Bust
Police at Texas Christian University have 17 students under arrest for dealing drugs. Among them are four members of the college’s nationally-ranked Division I football team. According to the arrest affidavit, the entire football team underwent a surprise drug test on the same day as one of the arrested players sold marijuana to the undercover police officer. The player told the officer that he wasn’t worried about the test, and that “up to 60 players” would fail it.
FOX News Radio’s Eben Brown reports:
Three key TCU players were among those arrested in a drug sting by police on the campus in Fort Worth. Linebacker Tanner Brock, defensive tackle D.J. Yendry and cornerback Devin Johnson are all charged.
(Boschini) “This is a student issue, not a student-athlete issue.”
…says school Chancellor Victor Boschini. A fourth player, offensive lineman Ty Horn, was also arrested. Fort Worth Police Captain Ken Dean says all 17 were charged with selling drugs, from cocaine to Percocet, to undercover agents.
(Dean) “When I say ‘hand-to-hand’ transactions, this is with an undercover officer. This is not with a confidential informant or anything like that.”
