COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – A state highway patrol report says former Missouri tight end Brandon Holifield has been arrested possession of marijuana.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol arrest report, Holifield was pulled over early Sunday morning in Boone County after driving 69 mph in a 55-mph zone.

Upon investigation, he was also arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, driving without a valid driver’s license and speeding.

He was released from the Boone County Jail after posting a total bond of $800.

Team spokesman Chad Moller says Holifield had been dismissed from the team earlier in the week for violating team policy.

Holifield, from Tallahassee, Florida, was suspended last month for a game after being in a car when three teammates were arrested for possession of up to 35 grams of marijuana.
