Just days after scoring his first touchdown in a Missouri Tigers uniform, Mizzou freshman wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham is in the news for a very different reason.

According to The Maneater, the school's student newspaper, Green-Beckham was arrested on Wednesday night for possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana.

The incident occurred in the Lot G parking lot of Memorial Stadium, just footsteps away from where head coach Gary Pinkel's Tigers will host Vanderbilt in a key SEC game on Saturday.

DGB was not alone when arrested on Wednesday night. Fellow freshmen Torey Boozer and Levi Copelin were also arrested with the same charges.

All three players have been suspended Saturday's game with Vanderbilt.
