Dorial Green-Beckham's father: Confident WR won't be charged
Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham was arrested and released, according to the Springfield Police.
Green-Beckham has since been released from Greene County Jail, but police will not comment officially on the matter until Monday.
John Beckham, father of the star wide receiver, does not believe that Green-Beckham will face charges after the investigation is complete. He commented on the matter Saturday in a text message to Dave Matter, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
"Dorial was arrested last night. After being interviewed he was released. We feel very confident that the investigation will result in no charges against Dorial. Dorial very much regrets being in this situation and our family looks forward to this being resolved," Beckham said.
Green-Beckham, 20, and two others were arrested after a traffic stop and taken into custody at the Greene County Jail. A Springfield police spokesman declined to provide further details.
The sophomore wide receiver was one three players charged with marijuana possession in October 2012. That arrest resulted in a one-game suspension for Green-Beckham, with other disciplinary actions being handled internally.
If a similar punishment is applied to DGB's latest run in with the law, it could affect the star wide receiver's status for the opening of the 2014 season. The Tigers kick will off the year with South Dakota State at home before traveling to Toledo and play host to UCF on Sept. 13.
