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.
