Mizzou Basketball, Football Players Caught With Pot

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Four Missouri athletes were arrested Saturday night on suspicion of possession of 35 grams or less of marijuana during a traffic stop.

Guards Wes Clark and Shane Rector of the basketball team and defensive backs Aarion Penton and Shaun Rupert from the football team were pulled over at 11:32 p.m. Columbia police say the four athletes each received a court summons and were released

Basketball coach Frank Haith says Clark and Rector were suspended from practice, but not necessarily for Tuesday’s National Invitational Tournament opener against Davidson.
