WACO, Texas -- Baylor receiver Willie Jefferson has been dismissed from the team after his second arrest on a drug charge in as many weeks.
Coach Art Briles says in a school statement that he is cutting the sophomore for violating unspecified team rules.
Jefferson was arrested Thursday in nearby Bell County. Jail officials say he was free on $1,500 bond after his arrest on a misdemeanor marijuana possession complaint.
Last week, Waco police arrested Jefferson and fellow sophomore receiver Josh Gordon after officers reported finding a small plastic bag of marijuana in a car Jefferson was driving. Gordon was a passenger.
