Names Of Four TCU Football Players Arrested In Drug Ring To Be Released Wednesday

The name of the four TCU football players arrested as part of a drug bust on the TCU campus will be released later today, according to TCU police chief Steve McGee. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram is reporting that at least one of the four players is a starter for the Horned Frogs.

Officials from Texas Christian University as well as local law enforcement agencies held a press conference Wednesday morning to announce the arrest of 17 TCU students involved in a six-month investigation into the sale of illegal drugs on and near the TCU campus. Officials confirmed four TCU football players were among the 17 arrested early Wednesday. McGee said that all 17 students "were drug dealers."

According to a report by the Associated Press, the investigation began after multiple complaints from students and parents of students. Also, the AP is reporting that all 17 students involved in the case have been expelled, however, the Star Telegram quotes Chancellor Victor Boschini as saying the accused would be expelled if they were found guilty.
