LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -Texas Tech linebacker Kellen Tillman was arrested on a marijuana possession charge, two days after being suspended for the Red Raiders' last game.
Tillman, a 23-year-old senior, posted $750 bond on a Class B misdemeanor charge of possession of under 2 ounces of pot and was released shortly after his arrest late Monday, the same day his suspension from the team was lifted.
Tillman, a starter, had 21 tackles and a sack in Texas Tech's first four games.
It wasn't clear Tuesday why Tillman was benched for Texas Tech's 75-7 victory against Northwestern State. Coach Mike Leach didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
According to police, an officer walked up to one of two cars stopped in the center turn lane of a street and saw what he believed to be marijuana. Tillman, the only person in the car, was arrested at the scene, Lubbock police Lt. Scott Hudgens said.
It appeared the two cars had been involved in a minor traffic accident, Hudgens said.
If convicted, Tillman faces up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
