SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - University of Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has been arrested and released in an incident police say is tied to illegal drugs.

Springfield, Mo., police representative Anthony Cunis says Green-Beckham was arrested early Saturday on "suspicion of drug activity." Cunis says the investigation is ongoing and declined to provide more information regarding the arrest or whether charges had been filed. He says the department will release more information on the case Monday.

An official with the Greene County Jail confirms that Green-Beckham was booked there Saturday and later released.

Green-Beckham was charged in October 2012 with marijuana possession after he and two teammates were reportedly smoking pot in a campus parking lot near Memorial Stadium. All three later pleaded guilty to second-degree trespassing in the case.
