Springfield police arrested Mizzou football standout Dorial Green-Beckham at 10:00 on Friday night.
Authorities say the 20-year old former Hillcrest High School student was one of three people in a vehicle pulled over on Jefferson and Sunshine streets. DGB was booked into the Greene County Jail after the arrest, but is no longer in police custody.
He's not yet been charged, but the offense description for his arrest reads "Distribution, Delivery, Manufacture of a Controlled Substance." It also lists the offense as 195.211. That is a pretty wide ranging catch-all statute, which means that a lot of potential actions could lead to a charge.
This isn't DGB's first arrest. He was arrested in Columbia in October 2012 on a misdemeanor charge of marijuana. Those charges were later dropped.
"Our thought process on that is versus looking at that as a lifetime negative we try to see it as a lifetime opportunity so whenever you have some challenges and whenever you make a mistake, how do we look at that and how do we grow from that. We never necessarily forget that opportunity to grow, we want to look at it that way and not necessarily always perceive that as a negative that's going to stay with us forever," said Mizzou Athletic Director Mike Alden, upon hearing of DGB's first arrest.
Police have not yet released whether anything illegal was actually found on the star athlete.
Green-Beckham is the biggest football player to come out of southwest Missouri, the highest recruit ever from this area.
This was a big year for him on the field and off the field.
Coming off his freshman year, he played well, but didn't shine on the field as much in 2012. He had that arrest in Columbia that marred the end of his freshman year. But this past year, his sophomore season, he really showed the nation what he could do on the football field.
DGB earned second team All-SEC honors with a team high 59 catches, 883 yards and 12 touchdowns.
There was talk at the end of the season of him coming out of Mizzou early to enter the NFL Draft next year, after his junior year.
He's got all the assets, speed, size with many scouts hoping he could improve his toughness on the field - battling for the ball with defenders.
He now has two off-the-field documented incidents that led to arrests.
