Texas A&M receiver arrested for drug possession 1 day before season opener, suspended indefinitely

Micah Tease was one day away from starting his college football career.

It remains to be seen when this will happen.

The Texas A&M freshman catcher was arrested Friday by campus police and charged with possession of a controlled substance, a second-degree felony, and possession of less than two ounces of marijuana, a misdemeanor.

He was released on $13,000 bail before midnight, according to Brazos County Jail online records.

Due to Athletic Department policy, Tease is now suspended indefinitely.

Online jail records say police received a complaint Friday night from a resident of an apartment complex about the smell of marijuana coming from his upstairs balcony. Police asked residents of the upstairs apartment to search the house, but their request was denied.

So police issued a search warrant and said they found edibles in Tease’s room and marijuana in a trash can.

Edibles weighed 48.1 grams, while marijuana weighed 0.051 ounces.

Tease was a four-star freshman from Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Originally committed to Arkansas, he changed his mind and made a good impression by scoring a touchdown in the spring game.

The Aggies begin their season Saturday night at home against New Mexico. Texas A&M went 5-7 last season, 2-6 in the SEC.

However, the Aggies pulled off a huge upset against No. 5 LSU to end their season and end any hopes LSU had of making the College Football Playoffs.
