Report: TCU QB told police he failed drug test
Friday, August 3, 2012
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- TCU starting quarterback Casey Pachall admitted to police that he smoked marijuana and failed a drug test in February, two weeks before his roommate was arrested during a drug sting.
The revelation was in a Feb. 15 police report obtained Friday by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and first reported by TCU360.com, the university's student media website.
In an e-mailed statement to the Star-Telegram, TCU coach Gary Patterson said he was aware of Pachall testing positive Feb. 1. There was no indication if Pachall had or would be punished.
Tanner Brock, then Pachall's roommate, and three other TCU football players were among students arrested Feb. 15 by Fort Worth police. All four arrested players were kicked off the team, and have received probation after pleading guilty to marijuana delivery charges.
