Coastal Carolina has suspended sophomore quarterback Dontrell Jackson indefinitely after he was arrested last week on gun and drug charges, according to WMBF News.
The 19-year-old was arrested Wednesday by the Coastal Carolina Police Department and released two days later after posting a $5,115. He is charged with simple possession of marijuana (less than 28 grams), first offense ($615); carrying or displaying firearms in public buildings or adjacent areas ($2,500); and sale or delivery of pistol to, and possession by, certain persons unlawful ($2,000).
“Coastal Carolina University student Dontrell Jackson has been suspended indefinitely from all football-related activities,” the school said in a statement to WMBF News.
Jackson’s Coastal Carolina bio no longer appears on the Chanticleers’ website.
Last season, Jackson was the backup quarterback to Grayson McCall. He was set to have a similar role this fall.
The former three-star recruit picked Coastal Carolina over Akron, Charlotte, Florida Atlantic and several other programs. He can only hope to be able to continue his college career.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
