Greene County Jail

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A Greene County judge sentenced ex-NFL, Mizzou star Dorial Green-Beckham to jail for violating his proabation after an arrest for marijuana.

He will spend 90 days behind bars.

Police arrested Green-Beckham, 25, on December 20 for possession of marijuana and resisting arrest. Officers served a search warrant at a home in the 600 block of East Grand. The officers say they observed Green-Beckham attempting to leave the home through a window. Officers say that is when they arrested Green-Beckham. Investigators say officers then found marijuana inside his pocket and a pound of marijuana inside a backpack belonging to Green-Beckham. Police say another man in the home was also arrested.

Green-Beckham has a history of arrests.

Green-Beckham had been on probation for a DWI arrest in December of 2017. Judge Jerry Harmison sentenced him to two years unsupervised probation. Troopers pulled Green-Beckham over on suspicion of drunk driving then.

Columbia, Mo. police arrested Green-Beckham for a marijuana offense while at the University of Missouri from 2012-2013. Police also arrested him for an incident involving alleged violence against a woman. The Boone County prosecutor later dropped those charges. The university dismissed Green-Beckham from the football program shortly after the arrest.

Beckham set the national receiving yards record while at Hillcrest High School from 2009-2012. He last played for the Philadelphia Eagles in the National Football League.
