    Senior wide receiver Brandon Carter was arrested Tuesday night for possession of marijuana, according to an incident report from the Fort Worth Police Department .

    According to the report, officers were on a routine patrol on Calhoun St. and ran the license plate of a 2010 Lexus.

    Officers saw that the owner of the car had two outstanding warrants so they pulled the car over, according to the report.

    Carter was driving the car, which belonged to Alexis Harris, who was in the passenger seat of the vehicle.

    Harris previously played for the TCU women’s soccer team, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Stefan Stevenson.

    Alexis Harris, who was arrested with Brandon Carter Tuesday, left the #TCU soccer program a few months ago.

    The report said that Carter was arrested for possession of less than two ounces of marijuana. Harris was arrested for possession as well, along with two outstanding warrants.

    The 5-foot-11 wide receiver has 90 catches, 1312 yards and nine touchdowns in his career as a Horned Frog.

    Carter played in 11 of 12 games last season, but didn’t participate in any spring drills so he could focus on academics.

    TCU released a statement on the arrest around 3 p.m. on Wednesday.

    “The University and the Athletics Department are aware of the arrest and are looking into details surrounding it,” TCU said in the statement.

    As of Wednesday at 5:50 p.m., Carter is still on the team’s roster.

    “In general, if a student is alleged to be in violation of the University’s student code of conduct, they are afforded a disciplinary hearing to determine personal responsibility.  Upon determination, the student may face consequences from the University, and possibly the football team, above and beyond any legal consequences the student might face.”
