Texans running back D’Onta Foreman was arrested this morning on charges of unlawful carrying of a weapon and possessing less than two ounces of marijuana.

The Austin American-Statesman reports that the University of Texas police department arrested Foreman after responding to a call at 12:24 a.m. Foreman, a rookie from Texas, was released around noon.

Foreman was one of seven men police cited on marijuana possession charges after someone called police about the smell of marijuana coming from three cars parked near a Texas campus residence hall. The other six men were all cited only for possession of marijuana.

The Texans used a third-round pick on Foreman in this year’s draft.

    Good career move.

    Caught with guns and drugs before you even make it to training camp. I’m sure the coaching staff will have plenty of faith in this rookie going forward.

    And these brainless draft “experts” were all fixated on Mixon before the draft.

    He’ll get a slap on the wrist.

    Yet another name with an apostrophe in it and no surprise that person finds himself in trouble with the law…

    How dumb can you be? I bet his IQ is in the 60’s

    2 ounces?

    yikes

    i am all for legalization and regulation but that
    is a lot of weed for personal use

    not sure why these idiots make these decisions

    have someone else bring you the 2 ounces!

    why is this so difficult?

    His NFL debut is gonna be delayed by a suspension. I don’t care as much about the weed as I care about the unlawful possession of the gun. Together they can create a deadly situation.

    Until the NFL decides to throw these guys who do this stuff out permanently, nothing will change. Especially if they are good players.

    This story leaves me pondering two things….

    Who in the heck would call the police over the smell of marijuana?

    O.K…pondering 3 things….

    What police dept. has the time or interest in following up on such a stupid call?

    And finally…How do you unlawfully carry a gun in Texas? Does that just mean that the gun wasn’t loaded?

    This is not a big deal….hypocritical as some states its legal and some not. I think he needs to be reading to pee in a cup real soon….dummy.

    We spend so many tax dollars arresting people, then we complain about taxes. Lots of people in this country think everyone should carry a gun. Lots of states have legalized marijuana. What in the heck is going on? Some of us want more government control, some of us want less. I just can’t believe that the majority of Americans want to keep raising taxes to incarcerate people for these types of “crimes”. We love guns, right? We love drugs, right? We can’t make up our minds about what we want. We are the voters. We vote, then we complain about who we elect. We blame the politicians that we vote for. And we all think we’re smart. Good grief! LOL!

    University of Texas Police. I live in a very large university town. During the summer sessions there are only a fraction of students on campus yet the enormous police force does not get put on furlough. They sit in their SUVs every other block zapping anyone going 1 mile an hour over the limit.

    In other words, they have nothing to do so it isn’t a surprise they took the call and followed up on it.

  32. breadmeatcheese says: Jul 16, 2017 4:23 PM

    the arrest meter, yes. this does not reset the purple drank meter however.

  33. suncawy says: Jul 16, 2017 4:31 PM

    How do you do this when you haven’t even made the team yet? Let alone made a carry in the NFL.

  34. yoursoulcollector says: Jul 16, 2017 4:36 PM

    I am digging this hard. This kid is prolly two months away from his first DV arrest. Go Texans!

  35. jackedupboonie says: Jul 16, 2017 4:41 PM

    Over 2700 players on NFL rosters right now…pretty sure there will be some arrested during the summer.

    The University of Texas only allows concealed carry of a handgun by a person who holds a valid Texas concealed carry permit. Open carry is not allowed on UT property, nor are rifles or shotguns allowed. Requirements to obtain a Texas concealed carry permit include (among other things): being at least 21 years old, having no felony convictions, having no Class A or Class B misdemeanor convictions/adjudications in the past five years (a category that includes DUIs), and not being delinquent on child support payments.

    Just modify the Cam rule. Tell them you were so stoned that you forgot you had the pot and gun.

  38. campcouch says: Jul 16, 2017 5:27 PM

    I know athletes love returning to their former universities to score 19 year olds and flash their new wealth, just avoid the booze and drugs and no one can call the cops on you out of jealousy.

  39. 666undead says: Jul 16, 2017 5:40 PM

    *Disregard above* Just modify the Cam rule. Tell them you thought that you were in Colorado and were so stoned that you forgot about the gun.

    Or you could learn to read. It clearly says that the charge was passion of less than two ounces. Had it been over two ounces, it would have been a more significant crime.

    With training camp starting in just a few weeks, does the rookie know that they all get PIZZ TESTED at their physical on day 1 ??? Not to smart bro. It takes 25 – 30 days to get thc out of your system.
