COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M athletics officials say receiver Speedy Noil has been suspended from the football team after he was charged with drug possession.
Noil, a junior from New Orleans, turned himself in to College Station police, posted a $2,000 bond Tuesday and was released. He’s charged with possession of less than two ounces of marijuana, a misdemeanor.
Noil’s arrest stemmed from a complaint Friday about loud noise from his apartment. Officers said they smelled marijuana and when he refused to allow them inside, they obtained a warrant and found the drugs.
Noil was suspended before a post-season game last year and missed the Aggies’ 2016 season opener. He had 21 catches for 325 yards and two touchdowns this year.
