SPRINGFIELD, Mo--Former Hillcrest and current Missouri wide reciever Dorial Green-Beckham was released after being arrested late last night.

Green-Beckham and two others were taken into custody by Greene County Jail after a traffic stop due to an expired liscense plate.

The officer searched the car after he could smell marijuana.

He then found approximately a pound of marijuana and assorted drug paraphernalia.

All three were booked for alleged distribution of a controlled substance.

This isn't Green-Beckham's first run in with the law either, in October of 2012, he was arrested in Columbia on suspicion of marijuana possession and served a one-game suspension as a result.

Mizzou is coming off of a Cotton Bowl victory and a season in which the Tigers wide receiver had 59 catches, 12 touchdowns and 883 yards.

Again, DGB was released this morning and has not been charged.

The Missouri Athletic Department has not yet released an official statement.

But, Mizzou's Media Relations Director, Chad Moller told our Dan Lucy, "We are aware of the situaton and are working to learn more. That's the extent of what  can share currently."
