Montana offensive tackle Trevor Poole was arrested on a felony drug charge over the weekend after a drug task force officer reported seeing him exchange cash for a plastic bag of suspected drugs at a large Halloween party.
Officers said Poole told them he had purchased two “molly” pills, the street name for a form of the drug ecstasy.
Poole made an initial appearance in Justice Court on Monday on a charge of criminal possession of dangerous drugs and was released.
School officials say the 20-year-old sophomore from Spokane has been suspended indefinitely.
Meanwhile, Montana coach Mick Delaney announced the suspension of three other football players for violating team rules.
Linebackers Nick Holt and John Kanongata’a and center Kjelby Oiland are suspended for Saturday’s game against Weber State.
