Oklahoma State freshman linebacker Brendan Vaughn was arrested Saturday, according to a report by the OSU campus newspaper, the Daily O'Collegian.

OSU coach Mike Gundy told reporters Tuesday that Vaughn was dismissed from the team Sunday.

An Oklahoma State football spokesman said the program is aware of the situation but had no further comment.

As of now, Vaughn is still on the OSU roster. Vaughn was arrested, and reportedly admitted while in custody that the money came from selling marijuana.

When they got to his door, they could smell the marijuana and could hear a vacuum sealer running inside the room. The men gave permission to the officers to search for marijuana, as did Vaughn once police spoke with him.

Officers found a small pile of "green leafy substance" on the desk in front of the window and a shoebox with a vacuum-sealed food bag containing a "large" amount of what appeared to be marijuana, according to the affidavit. They placed Vaughn under arrest while they continued to search the rest of the room.

In all, officials say they seized about 1.5 pounds of marijuana. He was released Sunday from the Payne County Jail.

The possession with intent to distribute charge is a felony, and the possession of drug paraphernalia is a misdemeanor.
