Key defenders among football arrests in TCU bust

Three key defensive players on the Texas Christian football team are among 17 students arrested in a campus drug bust.

Linebacker Tanner Brock, the leading tackler two seasons ago, defensive tackle D.J. Yendry and cornerback Devin Johnson were among four football players arrested Wednesday. The other is offensive lineman Ty Horn.

Police say they were caught making "hand-to-hand" sales of marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs to undercover officers.

TCU Police Chief Steve McGee said the arrests came after a six-month investigation prompted by complaints from students, parents and others. Police would not rule out more arrests, but said only people caught selling drugs had been arrested Wednesday.

Officials said the students had been "separated from TCU," but it wasn't clear if the players had been kicked off the team.

    Although the news of this story is very troubling I was pleased to hear that the school "seperated" itself from the students immediately including the players. The players were almost immediately removed from the onlilne roster. In my opinion not many schools, especially those whith high profile football programs, would have done so. Great job to the students who informed the police that this was going on and to the University for taking such a strong stand against drugs!

          So let me get this straight, u applaud the way everyone at the school handle this? What they did was the right/correct way to handle this. There were numerous laws broken that we ALL must abied by, i'm not gonna give tcu correct for doing what was/is right,come on, folks broke the law,they were turned in, isn't that what's supposed to happen? and by the way they/tcu need to quit saying everyone else does it, so does that make it ok for a christian school,or not, ok too do it? u say u can/could run with the big boys(big12) now lets see.
