TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona sophomore safety Patrick Onwuasor has been cut from the team after being arrested and accused of drug dealing and having a weapon.
Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez announced Tuesday that Onwuasor ``has been removed from the program.''
Tucson police say the 20-year-old Onwuasor was taken into custody Monday on suspicion of four felony counts after a search warrant was served at his apartment. Police say the warrant was obtained through a separate investigation into an April 29 home invasion in California in which Onwuasor wasn't implicated as being present.
Officers reported finding narcotics, drug paraphernalia, marijuana and a weapon during the search of Onwuasor's apartment.
He was indicted last week, arraigned Monday in the presence of his attorney and released. Onwuasor's next court date wasn't immediately clear Tuesday.
