Green-Beckham, a Springfield native, plays football for Missouri University and led the Tigers in receiving yards and touchdowns this season.
According to the probable cause statement, police pulled over an SUV driven by John McDaniel at a traffic stop for expired plates at the intersection of Jefferson and Sunshine. DGB and Patrick Prouty were passengers in the vehicle. The officer noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the SUV and searched the vehicle. The officer found several items including a digital scale with marijuana on it, a plastic container with a large amount marijuana and a smaller plastic bag that also contained marijuana.
Upon the arrest the officer also confiscated McDaniel’s phone and located a message sent from the phone that addressed Prouty asking him about a “re-up” and saying he’s “fresh out.”
During the interview at the Greene County Jail, Prouty claimed ownership of the marijuana saying he “smokes a lot of weed”, but also said he never sold any marijuana. McDaniel told police that Prouty had sold him marijuana previously, and usually sells people grams and “eighths” for 50 dollars. DGB also told police that he knew Prouty had been involved with marijuana sales but he had no knowledge of Prouty selling to McDaniel. Green-Beckam claims he didn’t smoke any marijuana while in the vehicle, but acknowledged the SUV did smell like pot.
The search warrant is issued for McDaniel’s cell phone. DGB was arrested in Columbia in 2012 on a misdemeanor charge of marijuana, which was later dropped.
If convicted of a felony DGB could be dismissed from Mizzou’s athletic program.
