Texas A&M Lineman Arrested for Possession of Weed
BRYAN, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M freshman defensive lineman Isaiah Golden is free on $2,000 bond after a weekend arrest for marijuana possession.
Bryan police say the 19-year-old Golden was arrested Saturday night at an apartment complex. Details of the misdemeanor arrest aren't immediately available.
Aggie athletics spokesman Alan Cannon tells The Eagle of Bryan-College Station he wasn't aware of the arrest but says it's school policy to immediately suspend a student-athlete after an arrest pending further investigation.
Golden is from Carthage in Northeast Texas. He started six of the 11 games he played last season.
Conviction on a charge of possession two ounces or less of marijuana could get Golden up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
