Texas A&M receiver arrested for drug possession 1 day before season opener, suspended indefinitely
Micah Tease was one day away from beginning his college football career.
Now, it remains to be seen when that will happen.
The Texas A&M freshman wide receiver was arrested Friday by campus police and charged with possession of a controlled substance, a second-degree felony, and possession of less than two ounces of marijuana, a misdemeanor.
He was released on $13,000 bond before midnight, according to Brazos County Jail online records.
Due to athletic department policy, Tease is now suspended indefinitely.
Online jail records say police received a complaint from a resident of an apartment complex Friday night about a marijuana odor from the balcony upstairs from him. Police asked the residents of the upstairs apartment to search the home, but the request was denied.
So, police served a search warrant and said they found edibles in Tease’s room and marijuana in a trash can.
The edibles were said to have weighed 48.1 grams, while the marijuana weighed .051 ounces.
Tease was a four-star recruit out of Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Initially committed to Arkansas, he changed his mind and made an early impression by catching a touchdown in the spring game.
The Aggies kick off their season Saturday night at home against New Mexico. Texas A&M went 5-7 last season, 2-6 in SEC play.
However, the Aggies did pull off a huge upset over No. 5 LSU to finish their season and end any hope LSU had of making the College Football Playoff.
It was the second straight season the Aggies missed out on a bowl game after playing in one 12 straight seasons.
