Purdue suspends Dwayne Beckford indefinitely

By Tom Fornelli | College Football Writer

Dwayne Beckford may not have much time left at Purdue.

The linebacker was reinstated to the football team back in May, but on Monday night coach Danny Hope issued a release saying that Beckford had been suspended once again.

"It's unfortunate that Dwayne allegedly violated some of the terms of his probationary status," said Hope in the release. "Once we examine all the details that led to [Monday's] development, we will make a decision on his long-term status with the team."

The development Hope refers to is Beckford's fourth arrest in 15 months. While we don't know what led to Beckford's latest arrest, the Indianapolis Star reports that Beckford has been charged with possession of paraphernalia and possession of a synthetic drug.

Beckford is being held on three separate "no bond" warrants. The reason for this, according to the paper, is that prosecutors filed paperwork to revoke his probation.

Beckford is on probation following another marijuana possession charge in December 2011. The drug was found in his car after Beckford was charged with an OWI.

It was that December arrest that led to Beckford being suspended for Purdue's bowl game and his dismissal from the team before his reinstatement in May. At the time of Beckford's rejoining the team, Hope said Beckford would remain on the team as long as he did well in his classes and "there aren't any type of legal repercussions."
