SPRINGFIELD, Mo--Springfield police continue to investigate the arrest of Mizzou wide receiver and Hillcrest high school product Dorial Green-Bbeckham.

And it could take a while before any charges are filed by the Greene County prosecutor if at all.

That's because police are waiting for test results to come back from the crime lab and that could take months.

Mizzou football coach Gary Pinkel has not suspended Green-Beckham or even made a statement.

Green-Beckham was a passenger in a car that was pulled over for expired plates Friday night.

The police officer smelled marijuana and a subsequent search found nearly a pound of pot and drug paraphernaila.

Green-Beckham and two others were arrested and charged with felony distribution of a controlled substance.

Dorial tweeted Sunday that he didn't want people judging him without knowing what happened.

Green-Beckham's father, John Beckham sent a text message to the Springfield News-Leader and St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he's confident no charges will be filed. 

Mizzou suspended Green-Beckham for one game in 2012 after he was arrested for possession of marijuana.
