Redshirt freshman Brendan Vaughn was arrested on Saturday.
Oklahoma State linebacker Brendan Vaughn, 18, was arrested Saturday after police found “large amounts of marijuana and cash in his dorm room,” according to Kelsy Schlotthauer of The O’Colley.
OSU place arrested Vaughn on charges of possession of a controlled and dangerous substance with intent to distribute within 2,000 feet of a school and possession of drug paraphernalia.
At about 4 p.m., OSU Residential Life employees and police followed the smell of marijuana to 103 Davis Hall. Police knocked on the door and rang the doorbell but there was no response.
“A strong odor of fresh marijuana” was coming from the window of the apartment and an officer could hear a vacuum sealer running inside, according to the affidavit.
After police knocked on the door again, three men came out. Two reportedly told police they were residents and said their roommate, Vaughn, was in his room. Police asked whether they could search the apartment for marijuana, and the two residents said yes.
The smell led police to Vaughn’s room, and he reportedly gave them permission to search for marijuana.
Vaughn was released from jail on Sunday.
On Tuesday, Vaughn was charged with one count of felony possession of marijuana and one misdemeanor charge of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Vaughn was a 3-star linebacker coming out of high school, and the No. 52 ranked OLB in the country in the 2017 recruiting class according to 247 Sports.
