Drug charge against TCU receiver Carter dismissed


FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A marijuana possession charge against TCU wide receiver Brandon Carter has been dismissed.

The charge against 21-year-old Carter was dismissed Tuesday at prosecutors’ request. Carter hasn’t participated in spring practices for academic reasons.

Carter was arrested April 22 after Fort Worth police stopped a vehicle he was driving. Officers said they stopped the vehicle after a license-plate search found that Carter’s passenger, who owned the car, had an outstanding warrant.

Both were arrested on suspicion of possessing less than 2 ounces of marijuana, but district attorney’s spokeswoman Melody McDonald said prosecutors found insufficient evidence against Carter to proceed against him. The charge against his passenger stands.

Carter finished the 2013 season with 31 catches for 370 yards but no touchdowns after scoring nine touchdowns in his first two seasons.
