MU Football Player Arrested for Drug Possession

DECEMBER 21, 2005 - Posted at 2:25 p.m. CST

JEFFERSON CITY, MO - First came the campus parking ticket.

Then a littering charge for tossing the ticket to the ground.

Now Missouri football captain Jason Simpson will miss the final game of his college career after a weekend arrest for marijuana possession.

Police arrested Simpson after his name popped up in a criminal database for failing to appear in court on the littering charge.

The senior safety and the team's second-leading tackler this season was suspended by coach Gary Pinkel after the incident Sunday night.
