Houston Texans Rookie D’Onta Foreman Arrested On Drug, Weapon Charges

Baylor v Texas

This is not the ideal way you want to start your career in the NFL.

Houston Texans running back D’Onta Foreman just put himself deeper on the depth chart after it was reported he was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with marijuana possession of two ounces or less and unlawfully carrying a weapon, according to Brian Davis of the Austin American-Statesman.

Jail records show that Foreman was arrested by the University of Texas police department.

“UTPD spokeswoman Cindy Posey issued a statement to the American-Statesman that said UTPD police first responded to a call at 12:24 a.m. Sunday.

The officers “responded to a report of the smell of marijuana coming from three occupied vehicles near the southwest side of San Jacinto residence hall on campus,” the statement read. “Officers arrived on the scene discovered marijuana in each vehicle and also discovered a firearm in one of them.

“The owner of the firearm, D’Onta Foreman, was arrested for Unlawful Carrying of Weapons and Possession of Marijuana and booked into Travis County Jail. Six other male suspects were cited and released for Possession of Marijuana.

“None of them are UT students and they are not believed to have UT affiliations.”

Foreman rushed for 2,028 yards last season with the Longhorns and was drafted in the third round by the Houston Texans in this year’s draft.
