Two TCU Football Players Made Biggest Drug Deals; Most Arrested In Drug Bust Will Receive Probation

According to a report by Houston's KHOU.com, the four people who made the most on drug transactions investigated in the TCU drug bust included two Horned Frogs football players: junior defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey and junior safety Devin Johnson.

A look at the warrants reveals that the largest deals include those allegedly made by football players David Yendry and Devin Johnson. Their alleged marijuana sales total less than $1,600. Suspect Bud Dillard is accused of selling 250 Xanax pills for $750, and suspect Matthew Davis faces charges for allegedly participating in three buys totaling $1,800.

Even though it sounds like a lot of money, Dallas County district attorney Toby Shook says that most of the deals are small time compared to what prosecutors see and that they are most small, hand-to-hand deliveries.

According to a FOX Sports report from The Wall Street Journal, most of the suspects arrested, including the TCU football players, will not be facing time behind bars but probation instead.

All potentially face felony charges with sentences from six months to 10 years, criminal-defense lawyers said. But most defendants have no prior drug records and if charged are likely to receive probation, their lawyers said.

Attorney Jim Shaw, who represents two of the students arrested in the TCU drug bust, went as far to say that he doesn't think anybody who was arrested will be going to prison.
