TCU has dismissed third-leading receiver LaDarius Brown after the rising junior wideout's Sunday arrest on suspicion of marijuana possession, the Star-Telegram and other outlets reported Tuesday.

Per police reports reviewed by the Star-Telegram, Brown was stopped by an officer at 11:35 p.m. Sunday and booked shortly thereafter. He is "expected to be charged with possession of marijuana."

TCU released a pair of unusually candid statements -- one from athletics, one from the university -- in announcing Brown's dismissal, officially for the usual "violation of team rules":

“Due to a violation of team rules, LaDarius Brown has been removed from our football program. This is very unfortunate. We provide our student-athletes with all the guidelines and principles to be successful on and off the field. At some point, they have to govern themselves. It's a sad day for everyone.”

“University students, like everyone else, face various choices each day. TCU tries to assist students by offering them a variety of educational resources to help make wise choices. In general, if a student is alleged to be in violation of the University's student code of conduct, they can face a hearing and then a judicial process that may result in disciplinary action from the University above and beyond any legal consequences the student might face.”

As a sophomore, Brown appeared in all 12 Horned Frogs games, collecting 36 receptions -- good for a share of the team lead -- and 393 receiving yards. He leaves TCU with 778 career receiving yards and seven career receiving touchdowns.
