TX - Christian students, including athletes, nabbed in six-month drug sales sting
Key defenders among football arrests in TCU drug bust (Sports Illustrated)
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Authorities arrested 17 students at Texas Christian University on Wednesday as part of a six-month drug sting, an especially embarrassing blow to the school because it included four members of the high-profile football team.
Arrest warrants painted a startling picture of the Horned Frogs, with a handful of players who allegedly arranged marijuana sales after class or around practice and who told police that most of the team had failed a surprise drug test just two weeks ago.
[Ty] Horn and [Devin] Johnson scoffed at the Feb. 1 team drug test ordered by [head football coach Gary] Patterson, police said. Brock allegedly told an undercover officer that he failed the surprise test "for sure," but that it wouldn't be a problem because there "would be about 60 people screwed."
Horn had looked through the football roster and "said there were only 20 people that would pass the test on the team," [Tanner] Brock said, according to the warrant.
