Mizzou Safety Ka'Ra Stewart Dismissed From Team After Another Arrest

And another one.

Scoop: Missouri safety Ka'Ra Stewart has been dismissed from the football program, according to Dave Matter of the Columbia Tribune. Stewart, who redshirted in his true freshman season last year, was arrested for marijuana possession late last night. This was Stewart's second arrest in six weeks, as he was arrested previously for the same offense November 9th.

Significance: Stewart is the sixth Missouri freshman from this year's class to be arrested, and the fifth for marijuana possession. The safety has now become the second freshman from this year's class to be dismissed from the program, following Brandon Holifield.

Story: Arrests are slowly becoming an issue for the Tiger football program. Two players have now been dismissed from the team for drug-related issues, and three others have been arrested. Two other players have been arrested in the past year for leaving the scene of the crime. Discipline is must for the Missouri football team, and Coach Gary Pinkel needs to get his players in check. This news has caused angry current and former Tigers to take to Twitter to display their displeasure with the troublemakers.
