STILLWATER, Okla. - A former redshirt freshman football player at Oklahoma State University has been dismissed from the team and is facing drug charges.
Police arrested 18-year-old Brendan Vaughn after investigating reports of marijuana smoke being discovered in a residential hall at OSU.
When they searched the apartment, authorities discovered a small pile of a "green leafy substance" on a desk and a vacuum-sealed bag containing a large amount of marijuana.
According to the arrest affidavit obtained by the O'Colly, police found a larger bag of what appeared to be marijuana in the closet, several more vacuum-sealed bags, a safe, a digital scale and $1,500 in a box.
In all, officials say they seized about 1.5 pounds of marijuana.
Vaughn was arrested on one count of unlawful possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute within 2,000 feet of a school and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Tuesday evening, OSU head coach Mike Gundy officially announced Vaughn has been dismissed from the team for violating team rules.
