Backup Mizzou linebacker dismissed after pot bust

Monday - 6/17/2013, 7:18pm  ET

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A backup Missouri linebacker arrested during the 2012 season on drug charges has been dismissed from the team.

Team spokesman Chad Moller says redshirt freshman linebacker Torey Boozer is no longer a member of the Tigers. He declined further comment.

Boozer was arrested in October on marijuana possession charges along with classmates Dorial Green-Beckham and Levi Copelin after the three teammates were reportedly smoking pot in a campus parking lot near Memorial Stadium.

Boozer later pleaded guilty to second-degree trespassing, as did his two teammates, who remain on the squad. He was listed as third-string on the team's most recent depth chart.
